They dance, the lonely ones.
They dance, their expressions clear.
They dance, and when they're done,
their mask is still there.

Moving with strange beauty,
to their own shrieking tune.
Slowing their own one-two beat,
to partner with Life's groom.

Swinging their arms round,
with primitive flair,
Making guttural sounds,
with their last breath of air.

He dances his last dance, what a beautiful sight!
She dances her last dance, the knife takes them to night.
Looook... Sorry to people who were expecting some really good poetry. Some of you may find this good some might not. But it IS meant to be a joke in a way because it deals with death and I try to make a joke of everything I am afraid of. This took literally five minutes to write simply because I felt I needed to do a poem a week and wanted to get something done. Next poem WILL be better and more thought out. Anyways... shall we dance?

Wow, that was actually very pretty!! I like that way that it starts out and you think they are literally dancing or someting romantic but when it gets to the end it's actually a dance of death. I like the way you wrote it. :clap:

I like it :) I like the images, this was my fav line : "Making guttural sounds
With their last breath of air"

Good writing. You might want to add an 's' on dance in the first line of the last stanza though. ;)
