the dance

as nighttide settles
like calm seas
her backdrop
becomes your stage

old thoughts
sneak
like shadows
against mind's walls

i spin beneath
demonic haunts
as your words
fall
rage-red
winded fury
on burial grounds
already full
of little deaths

i gasp
through short breaths
and utter your name
as etched
on each stone

soaked
with morning
i rise
and remember
this dance

    Such a battle of memorable emotions & vulnerabilities. It's almost as if the "dance" is a vicious circle recreating that false sense of security. I'm hoping I'm kind of on track with this. Excellent job!
