Breathe the Dance-Macabre

 

Breathe the dance-macabre,

a sibilant sound, you see

the sense of something

dissonant, a distance, we

gaze upon a dark star,

the winter sun eclipse,

breathe the dance-macabre,

applied apocalypse.

ย 

Swords of seekers mark

the graves of those I claim,

brave in the face of oblivion,

the barbarians became

a haven for ravens,

the haunted harbour.

Bequeath the wicked waltz,

breathe the dance-macabre.

  2. Lovely work. Very atmospheric, particualarly the repetition of ‘dance-macabre’ tying the other elements together.
