the last dance

“the warmness of your greeting deserves to be repaid
except” he said “it’s cold and I am dreadfully afraid
worms will feast upon my corpse before this dance is through
even though I’ve no idea why I should dance with you”

I smiled at him and shook my head and gave a little wave
to spur on the workers who were digging him a grave
and even though his presence dragged I reached out for his hand
to explain myself once more to help him understand

“I am what you could have been if only you had dared
to step outside your comfort zone but always you were scared
so you took the easy path when it came time to choose
and anyway you look at it the game of life you lose

“so lie down and let them cover you with the fresh turned sod
and whisper your entreaties to your blind uncaring god
and I will go upon my way and think of you no more
a sorry little waste of space with nothing at it’s core”

    Very good! Very dark and mildly twisted! And maybe a bit cynical? *clappity-clappity* 😀

      You said it!!!
      ( Great one, Sunovawot )

      • Thank you, my poems would get written anyway, but it’s always nice to know if they entertain others as well as myself 😀

    • Thank you! I’ll go with you on “twisted” but I’m not so sure about “cynical”. This is another poem where I came up with a couple of lines I really liked, the first two in this case, and had to write something so I could use them 😈 😀

        That’s sort of like buying a hat..then having to find a suit to go with it! 😆 😆

        • I don’t think I’ve ever once considered what “goes with” any of my hats. As I only have jeans and teeshirts it would be a little pointless 😆
