Sorrowful Songs

The responsibilities and expectations
of the day
force their crispness upon me,
and I can minimize the pain…


but I cannot resist the beautiful chords,
music and words of such truth,
and how
they bring me down.


Delicately, the enchantment
of my broken heart begins;
bluntly, the cadence drives the point
breaking the wall that held my tears.


For these moments I will fall;
free to let the beautiful
sorrowful songs
pierce me once more.
