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.
