Dance of The Fallen

I walk onto the dance floor
And am surrounded by ghosts of summer's past
They dance around me wearing faceless masks
Each move with such grace and beauty
I know it is too good to last
Faster and faster the figures dance
To soon do I stumble
Giving myself away
Each covered face turns my way
Suspecting me of being something
Different, Strange
I realize then I am not a faceless creature
A hateful bane
I am bright and vibrant
Something that should not be covered
Or smothered by other's selfish spite
I reject your masks
Your hateful ways
For I am me and I will never be tamed
So I continue dancing in this
Masquerade
A prompt for the group :iconheart-of-poetry: thought this reflected how i felt about people and their many faces.. and how i refuse to be anyone other then me.

My wonderful friend :iconsilentsouldeathspoon: gets credit for the title. :D She is amazing!

Interesting ... this one reminds me of one of my older works.

Perhaps worth a look-see?

Some day maybe I'll share the rest of them. My best friend (and best man at my wedding), The Man Of A Thousand Handles, has turned many of my somrwhat-adequate poems into songs. I suppose I will have to double-check with him before I post any more of the collaborative works.

Your a very talented writer. :) Haha i just would be happy if i could get my poems published someday. fingers crossed lol but im only 19 so no one really wants to read my work.. :P lol oh well.. i have always been more mature then my age.
