Dancing With Death

Dancing With Death
Dance with me said death
Come dance in the dark
We are both all alone
And the darkness so stark

Embrace me said death
Wrap your warm arms around my bones
We are both without hope
Both of us so alone

Take my hand said death
Follow me down to the crypt
And Lay there beside me
Where both of us can rest

Stay with me said death
Here beyond the light of day
Let your bones join my own
In silence and decay
                      -Richard Autry
I put a personal spin on this one by ending Richard's poem with a more
triumphant outlook for the souls of the dearly departed.
Thanks to Mischief Circus for many of the elements in this piece from
their collections: Spiritus Mortis United, Human Skeleton and Halo Papers.
