    Words spoken on heartstrings
    Playing a melody only she can
    hear as I strum love into places
    broken by pain and confusion;

    I play my instrument well when
    the music settles within me and
    I can only see her silouhette dance
    to the tunes of true love’s sonnets;

    I can never share these words with
    one who seeks to edit the sounds
    by inputting a verse I never heard
    and words I could never have spoken;

    So I move to the swaying of the tune
    allowing each stanza to play me into
    a euphoric state of ultimate surrender
    to the only one who is strong enough;

    I see her as the notes are written and I
    kiss her as the melody is played each
    night the lights grow dim preparing rest
    for the solitude of weariness in slumber;

    She is the melody I play and yet she has
    yet to know that each note written in the
    darkness of solitude will be performed
    in an orchestra of eternal gladness and joy…
