In A Monster’s Waltz

Halloween poem #7

Melville Nightmare Before Halloween -The Greatfully Dead

In A Monster's Waltz
by Michael Romani

May the lost souls be found
No matter how or how unsound
Too long happiness has been elusive
For those rejected and now reclusive

Frankenstein each of us in our calamity
Darers to still dream in our legacy
Whatever misfortunes and mischance
Let us again dare to still dance

Castaway as if cast together
A Mephistophelian Waltz; no better
Sheltered in our dance of lies
We seek our best in each other's eyes

Quiet conversation on a stormy night
We've seen the worse and no longer know fright
Darkness may have erased our humanity
But, we won't allow it to take our last dignity
