As these forlorn cadences await- unfold To compose a disbanded vow Yielding unto harrows of gates untold Charms death to disdainful plow
Death is plowed to a forgiving halt While silver moonlight and whiskey dances remain Glittering gold in this crimson vault- Feeble souls conjure grace as graceless minds abstain
Counterfeit conceits ravish this open cellar As the night’s last dance ceases to a disgraceful plea The dweller’s disdain is akin to my killer And heaven yields blood to salt the earth for thee
Come away now with your anguishing defeats Seek not a jagged spike as the heaven’s conspire and wake Glory and gold may turn us black as deceit But deception admonishes the dancers in their quake
Spellbound nuances of this reality await at every turn Mourning and fighting the finality of this grave Orchestrated knives are rosined like honey, beckoning our blood to burn At last, a burning reckoning comes to ravage the brave
But refrain, oh killer- host of this crimson vault Enlist a memoir for our sins Recalling the pieties of our gracious faults, Enough to make this blood go thin.
This poem was abstractly written to describe a scene of death among ballroom dance and the last dancer responsible for the tragedy.
