I dance darkness
madness
insanity
and fright
devour calm
the still
the quiet
the nice

dread grins
stoned eyes
lake of lies
awake while asleep
aware
unaware
poetry bites

jolted tarred black
rocked
revived
fighting light
writing
dead dreams
into exquisite frights

I kiss
fresh fear
soft flesh
pornographic sights
swill panic
paint pills
swallow it right

birth
death
the beginning
end
purgatory
paradise
and start again

oh sweet
sweet seductive night

I dance you
forever
into my fading light
