Music hides within the warm of a dying breath

stale with time in forgotten heartbeats of joy,

a melody played more than once before it’s death

in a hopeless sacrifice of will seeking to destroy

the sweetness found in the innocence of love.


A fading tune with a slight taste of hidden passion

found in thirsty lips oblivious of loneliness and pain,

a soothing vagueness like ether in numbing fashion

sprouting dreams of youth that helps keeping sane

when desperation and longing sets in thereof.


The music playing softly keeping beat with my heart

in an elusive state of confused memories and reality,

a choice to let go and become silent or to be a part

of a life dancing away to the tune of my mortality.

    Stunning. And the photo – lovely. Life is a dance – finding the tune is difficult but I have been told it is there.
