Melodic

Melodic

Music hides within the warm of a dying breath

stale with time in forgotten heartbeats of joy,

a melody played more than once before itโ€™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.
