A dance with death

a frightful thing,

as they frolic ‘round

the devil’s ring.

A sensuous, sinning

dangerous dance

filled with lust

But not romance.

Her black-shadowed dress

His street-night attire

Glimmer as a

midnight’s fire.

Breaths come fast

as music quickens

Never comes

as moonlight thickens

But night shall pass

as comes the day

So in each other’s arms

they sway.

She turns, her shadows

fade apart

As lightness fills

into his heart.

And gone be it

the sinning night

As lovers part

for sake of light.

And return they shall

at dusk and dawn

Where both may mingle

in lover’s song.
