The Dancing Dream

byJames Cody©

Broken eyes cry as rough
Hands tear my clothes.
I am pushed into a green
I hear: "We have a partner."
A faceless grin takes my heart;
Boneless hands hug me and we
Along a Blue Danube.
I've seen her; she has dreamt my
As we sway to tuneless melodies,
My calf is brushed by a
hand. A child. Our child.
Skin glowing green and cold; we
It away. Annoyed. (afraid?)
We forget as we are joined
By faceless couples that
Have too many
We stand out; I have skin while
She has dead kisses.
We soon dance under dark
With red bloody candles in
Their eyes.
Their wings clap as we do
The hustle.

The crowd stops dancing.

We are pulled apart (abandoned)
And tied up.
Our child fondles a long
The child slits my belly; she tries
To speak...
The child cuts out her
The child grows and dies, consumed by
All that is left is a small
Hollow skeleton.
It looks happy.
We are freed. She looks at the child.
At me. She walks away.
The crowd dances, and I am
I cry, ignite my heart. Like a candle, I am blown out.
