Dance With The Dead

Day of the Dead

Friends break bread
And dance with the dead
Ghosts are prized
Truth in their eyes
Pantomime
Lost within time
Friends drink wine
Demonic, divine

See them dance
Lifeโ€™s final chance
Night of pure death
Mist on the breath
Donning their masks
Ritual tasks
This is the end
For us all, dear friend

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
