The Demon Dance


Poem Commentary

The Dark Knight has reared his evil head again ...

The Demon Dance

Within the deep, dark forest they gather -
They form a ring - round the blaze as they chant.
Within the flames and the burning matter,
The demons of darkness - shriek as they dance.

They call on the master to hear their song -
As the flames feed - burning all in it's path.
Devouring living creatures from high above, 
Sacrificing all to his eternal wrath.

On this, the unholiest of nights - they sing -
The Song of the Demon puts them into a trance.
They offer their souls for the pleasure he brings,
Into the inferno, they waltz - The Demon Dance.
They howl with pleasure as their shell's burn -
The Demon now dancing within their souls.
On this, the unholiest of nights - they yearn,
Immortality's wish granted, for him to control.

Now Spawns of Satan - they bide their time,
Awaiting the rise of their Master's stance.
When they control the world - cloaked in evil,
Spinning into the darkness of the Demon Dance.

I love dark poetry like this, and you have once again painted the picture so eloquently, this reminds me a little of "Lord Of The Rings", wich was one of my favorite books, when I was young. Very dark write done to perfection.



Thanks so much Sevyn7! :) I appreciate the read and review! I am a very dark writer as you will soon realize if you dare to venture further into my archives. Thanks again Pal! :) Ken

The master of darkness and evil has penned yet another fantastic write, bravo my friend!!! Awesome visual you create with this piece, purely haunting, I can see my self sitting there in the middle of the circle just praying it is all a bad dream, lol. Good thing I have my wings to fly off into the light or the terror of this write would surely consume me, masterful work from the dark master himself. The dark night has returned the flood gates have opened and all the innocence of the land will be buried in blood. I don't know if my floaties will help me this time, lol. I will have to go fly back up into my cloud for awhile to get away from these demonic twisted thoughts, lol. Purity of the soul, journey well!!! with grace and humiltiy you friend ANGEL aka The poem buster



FLY ANGEL FLY!!! Get the hell out while the gettin's good! LOL! :) Thanks my friend for always reading and commenting with such detail and flair! Hey ya know ... for an Angel .. yer not too bad!! lol! :) Thanks again Pal - Much appreciated as always! :) Ken

Your powers of description are razor sharp as always. You've served up another highly entertaining dish for all to devour. 10 from me

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
