Silence Sings to Starless Souls (song)

by Corinne   Nov 19, 2007

Silence sings to starless souls
A melancholy tune
One that plays on endlessly
For those who've left too soon

Their danse macabre remains unseen
By those with mortal eyes
Though we will learn the steps one day
And twirl 'neath unlit skies

Sway with abandon, lift your feet
Whenever the churchbell tolls
You soon will move to the melody sweet
Silence sings to starless souls

    'danse macabre'
    'Sway with abandon lift your feet'
    both lines that serve the poem well, especially with their descriptiveness and the way that they personify themselves and interact with human action. =] The only thing that I would suggest to change for future writing is to rhyme less. The less that you rhyme 'on cue' and in repitition, the more that when you do rhyme, it will capture the reader's attention and make the piece feel more original.
