"Dancing on Graves"

Updated on February 9, 2018

They say if you dance on someone's grave, the spirit of that person awakens to haunt you, until you either burn the remains, or they kill you. From the movie Th


Can you hear the mission bell?
The time has come...
For all little boys and girls to go home.
It's half past one.
Upon these graves they danced,
left their footprints in the mud.
And tonight all alone in their beds,
from their nightmares they will run.
Awaken from their dreams,
to their fears become real.
Come face to face with them,
with the devil make a deal.
They'll sell him their souls,
but a small price to pay,
for riches beyond measure,
for the ghosts to go away.
Oh, but, if only they knew,
there was a much easier thing to do.
Simply burn the remains
of the unwanted few.
In so many years they'll regret,
as they take their last dying breaths,
when in eternal hell fire,
they'll be laid to rest.

      thanx for the awesome comments guys. yes rebecca, it was meant to be a bit creepy, but also have a moral, never make a deal with a devil! hmm i dont think i am anywhere close to being able to be compared with mary shelley or stephen king, but thanks for thinking it. ah i only hope to be as popular a writer as them someday.

      Great poem. Reads almost like Stephen King in places. Dark and evocative.
