A Rondo in Your Shadow

An acrostic poem

"The rondo is a musical form that contains a principal theme which alternates with one or more contrasting themes..." - Oxford University Press


Eternally we dance - a rondo in each others arms,

Clutching at threads of memory and past -

Little more than life's final gasps.

Into the darkness we waltz,

Parting for one final assault -

Shouldering the gravity of worlds and bodies,

Equally crumbling under the annihilation that we embody.
