Dance (OctPoWriMo Day 17)

“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.” ― Rumi
Today I thought I'd try a nonet: the first line having 9 syllables, the second 8, and so on until the last line of 1 syllable. It demands a succinctness so I'm not sure if it works but a good challenge for me.

Dance of Angels by Leonard Afremov


Addiction. Broken relationships,
broken dreams. A bandage only
prevents awareness. Name it.
Fight for your life--but not
alone. Let Love take
your hand. Do not
resist His
healing
dance.
