There once was a girl who danced with Death

She put her Bravery to the test

They waltzed through the Night

With Fear in their eyes

Until Mourning had told them to rest

 

She decided again to face Death

She wasn’t sure Why, but he could guess

They swayed in the Dark

With Love in their hearts

Until Daylight had reclaimed his guest

 

She soon became addicted to Death

It felt like playing Russian roulette

His words, Dangerous

She, Adventurous

And a greater Match neither had met

 

But again the girl remembered Life

Abandoned Death, and escaped his scythe

He stood there Alone

Watching from Tombstones

Betrayal not outweighing his Blithe

 

After time she forgot about Death

Her Heart grew complacent in her chest

Life continued On

Death was all but Gone

As he watched her grow Old and depressed

 

Once more she reunited with Death

He bowed as she Curtsied, dressed her best

Her legs were Weary

Death’s Eyes were teary

Until she had drawn her final Breath
