The Music

The night, soon late, begs we return on home,
and voices on my ears bequeath a sound
that makes me feel like I am here alone
– so loud those fell cacophonies resound.

My heartbeat turns to drums, my skin to chord.
My eyes strobe light, my fingers string the notes:
this knowledge that the friends I’d ne’er afford
yet chose to have me join their open throats.

Though peace is far from this reverbing beat,
and soon annoyance washes out each word,
the music we lay down on this dark street
sings on inside my heart, in silence heard.

This tune becomes the body of my soul
and memory of a love I can’t control.

  1. Hello Miriam! I got the notice of something but when I clicked there was nothing. Is there more to read?

  2. Heyo, thanks for you comment, and sorry for the late reply.

    I’m not entirely sure what you mean…. Is only part of the poem showing up for you?
    There should be 14 lines, so if you’re getting all of those, then there’s nothing missing from this poem.

    Cheers,
    M.
