Dance Till Dawn – a Poetry Story for the #RWThe13WritingChallenge.

Dance Till Dawn
by Ronovan

Are you old and decrepit

or aged and wise?

Are you young and foolish

or idiot in disguise?


No matter your answer,

you’ll be pleased to know,

The devil is in you,

way deep in your soul.


He travels your pathways,

sees through your eyes.

He kills your darlings

and thrills your lies.


Your betraying glances

are his to play and toy.

Making his days fun,

and his nights to enjoy.


In either day or night,

matters not to he.

He’ll help dig your grave,

dance on it with glee.


But this tale fear not,

a myth to be sure.

The devil doesn’t dance,

but your writhing and twisting?          It holds an allure.
