Her Dance Not Mine

Source


I say dance my child…. move

Don’t stand there…prove

Your eyes call unto thy ashes

Movement so kissable it slashes


Your corpse of divinity murmurs

The ground beneath tremors

The hells are rising with every step

The queen of the dammed now rep


She says move for me my child

While the dark spirits roam wild

Pitch dark the upper layer falls

Unto her delta she calls


Rise in heat and dance

While her puppets on strings prance

Held to her palm with chains

Holding the leash of her reigns


Dance… I say keep dancing don’t stop

AS she rises and rises to the top

A goddess of flames she dances away

Leaving the middle layer to prey

Very beautiful words that you don't see too often, especially in poetry. I loved the line "while her puppets on strings prance."

I felt the heat from the flaming dance. The puppets dancing on the end of chains pulled and controlled by the dance. Yes dark and sultry for sure, like only a Bellawritter can do, up and awesome for sure. Nice imagery and a little devilish with a grin...

well this is different. It was a little too dark for me. I think overall it is quite something. I do pray and hope that you may find a lighter mood? Take care..I will never listen to this song and not think of this version.

I voted up! Just because...

...you know .... in this life there are people who try to find and put words together (which includes many of us) and then there is the rare breed who have 'words' come rushing to them, all excited, like little children, saying - "pick me Bella, please pick me ....."
