They dance around the room,
Skirts flowing, feet flying.
Their expressions hidden
Behind the colorful masks.

The mysterious women,
The deadly men, gently dancing
Around each other,
Through the bright, colored room.

The killer is among them,
Behind his jeweled mask,
And as long as they dance
They twirl around death.

Every person who takes
His hand or a dance,
Every person who brushes
Against him in passing.

They are all marked,
Quickly pinpointed by him,
Those who are unlucky
Will never breathe again.

Don't worry, darling,
This is a masquerade.
A bloody, masked playground,
But you'll be safe, my dear.

Just watch them, darling,
Dancing, laughing fools,
But all of them are killers,
So don't you be tricked.

Just pull on your mask,
Hide your emotions, your face,
Keep your weapons close,
Because, baby, you're the killer.
I've already wrote something like this, but the idea of a masquerade fascinates me to no end.

Great job ~ I really like the poem. My only negative feedback I can think of is that the rhythm could be a little more fluid, other than that, fantastic; great job! :squee:

Thanks~ I know about the rhythm, I wrote this spur-of-the-moment and everything just kinda tumbled onto the page.

I know what you mean, I write like that all the time and rarely actually get back to revise it *shrug* oh well :D But I really do like it.

Last stanza,
second line,
fourth word,
I think you're missing an "r".

But it's a nice poem~
