Dance Upon Your Grave

The day that you die I will dance upon your grave
And shed myself from the shackles of your shame
I would put you there myself, if only I were brave
Knowing now that your monster can’t be tamed
For your demons, I no longer could be blamed

Your death would turn me loose
Set me free from your abuse
And I would dance like I was a little girl
From around my neck I’d cut the noose -
If only they’d remove you from my world

by, Joe Flach for nette onclaud's "Let's Dance" contest

    You are always killing off your wife in your poems - now you want to dance on her grave. Does she ever read these? Nice poem - congrats on your win. Mike

    In this case, you are influenced by knowing who the author is ... I actually wrote this as if the narrator was a girl in an abusive relationship with a man. I guess I did not succeed in getting that across.
