Six Long Strings

Six long strings I strum
On this instrument of song
Finding chords which fit the numb
Words reveling feelings I long
What went wrong?

Voice wavering trying to reach
High notes drowned with feeling
What was it you were striving to teach
Whilst my heart you were stealing?
Left me kneeling.

Music is known to heal the soul
Chorus written to repeat
Lyrics sung from a heart’s hole
Strings vibrate with the beat
Song feels so damn incomplete.

Favorite songs drift from speakers
Dialed to a station of memorable tunes
Written by artists and lonely seekers
Tied to drifting balloons
Over heart’s desert dunes.

Songs repeat loudly in my head
Those I’ve written, some I’ve not
All seem to have a familiar thread
Floating notes with a similar plot
Love forever, so I thought.
