“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

The Dancers

They dance with the sweat flinging from their limbs

They dance to impress invisible faces

And their own are as stones

Immovable, without emotion

And they spin with the ferocity of lions

Not only sweat, but paint

Dripping, dripping

They are dark like the night

Twirling in the skins of their kill

They are dangerous like the night

The blood of the animals still upon them

And they shout

And it screams to the soul

Pushing past the boundaries of the body

And back out again

Like a blinding light it escapes

They feel it

You feel it

And you dance

I Need A Little Help With The Title…But…Anyway…

mirrors you wish you shattered quicker

always come to haunt

eyes that follow change your heartbeat

try to let her go

remember

love began

with a kiss

on the hand

all that’s  been

wasted on the

porcelain doll

you share your world with

there is no denying you find

fault in every step

memories that leave you sighing

try to bring her back

remember

love began

with a kiss

on the hand

all that’s been

wasted on the

porcelain doll

you share your world with

turn to your reflection and break the glass

 that holds you there

step inside there‘s no returning

to your pale friend

just remember

love began

with a kiss

on the hand

all that’s been

wasted on the

porcelain doll

you share your world with

Why You Dance

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that moves the very center of your soul

and releases all the hurt you ever had

and forgets every promise that you broke

but you can’t help but start to wonder what you’re for

and you feel it so deeply that you cry

and dreaming isn’t what it was before

and you doubt the point of “who” and fear the “why”

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that you been showing off since time began

and only now you’ve started wondering

why you’re here

and why you dance

you’ve been spinning for so long you’re in a hole

it makes it that much harder to escape 

and the dizzier you are the less control

it seems there’s no way out your present state

you used to like the feeling that it gave

but you’ve seen what it means to be complete

and you know the happiness you felt was fake

and you’re tired of the aching in your feet

call it what you will but it’s a dance

that you been showing off since time began

and only now you’ve started wondering

why you’re here

and why you dance
