"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)


Would you like to dance with me?
Not on the floor – it’s much to crowded
With it’s spinning smiles and blaring noise

A dance just between the two of us
One we can share and never break
Not a waltz or a grind or line, silly boy

But a dance around the broken glass
Stabbing at each other with lashed tongues
Dancing away from the insults and contests

Without a flicker of either face.

I like the idea of a dance for two. I hate all the extra drama and competition.:)
