Dead Dances

Dead Dances

A Poem by Zackery Alan Daley

She dances on water.
So damn hot, she's gotta be the Sun's daughter,
But I caught her, believe it or not, I took the shot.
I told her to leave her arms alone, no more "cutters".

Let's compare scars and then share 'em.
Just talking to you is a Godsend,
We have nothing in common,
At first I was quite astonished.
Like how you are straight, 
and I smoke chronic. 

Shes cool, cool with that:
"Just don't let it affect US Zack..."

She dances on water.
Walking on it now doesn't seem like a bother.
The way she twirls and unfurls,
Doesn't just make me want her,
I want to flutter away,
Make everything okay...
