dancing in the twilight

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

dancing in the twilight

who knows how long the night will be

assuredly the dawn won’t break again

bring on what remains

after the callous world has eaten  your time

blind obeisance and grinding mediocrity

and cut you off a meager share

a brief nova shot through with dayshine

you are not one who rests in glory

you don’t respect the status quo

that commands you as if you were a mannequin

and compels you bide your time quietly

until you are too weak to fight the power

this pathetic enlightenment too late

the rhapsody of death so hollow

a sobriety from which there is no rehabilitation

you are tired from the race

to build a little pile of gold

like a desperate thief you  run away

to where a greater impoverishment offers succor

a fool with his delusions

footprints ending at the shoreline

the coming tide that will erase the memory of a tenuous existence

and still you dance

as if all is forgiven

knowing that the end is near

looking back it’s what you feared

the peace we fought for disappeared

stolen by the ones who cheered the flag

to leave you signifying nothing

you never thought they’d suck you in so deep

smoke and music walked the night

oblivious

until they threw you out on your ass when the party was over

and the world outside had changed forever

you shield your eyes from awaits you

when the new world had seemed so promising

until it was revealed to you

that the fairy tale of heaven is just a grand illusion

and a pleasant little metaphor

that life is just an open door

and love is  the blood that runs through you

your dead heroes unresurrected

no dreams could save them

why should it be any different with you

to walk alone into the sunset

knowing that time is not on your side

dancing with the noose  in your hand

after you’d volunteered as executioner

by your indifferent stand

you can dance one last dance

in the twilight

reliving what you thought had been

a life

and as the sun begins to set

you realize

that it was all a lie

so why bother, it’s over

all that’s left is the dying

and the rage against the light
