Snap Dragon Waltz

Cards dealt chance or stacked by  (?)

life’s whims of fate or is this a land

of space and plenty

where opportunities abound

to confound the senses.

How then the flame of pain

and fame lost

in the shake

of a head

the blink

of an eye

the snap

of the jaws

cruel bite, crunched.

This dance of life so

polite and ordained,

the floor

a field of battle,

complex fields

of ebb and flow

Released to spin and surge free

for space to roam and dance

Avoiding contact (well mostly)

missing others only just

grazing the edge of

each unseen wall of

space  that surround

and protects our

solitude alone

Faster then slower

the pace of their dance,

but music is lost in the

silent echo of fear that

shouts louder than

anyone can hear,

But I dance on,

how can I stop,

this floor,

this war,

this battle,

is closed ,

no way off

to rest and relax,

surrounded by walls that

bound this dance space,

At war to the end

it seems this

dance in the dark of

night cloying battle

to be won

but likely lost

And who sits above

in his lofty tower,

alone and uncaring

as the dance plays out

But loves blood shed

and pain washed floor

sweeps losers and winners

to face their maker for

rewards beyond measure

heart’s desire achieved.
