63 Notes

by Poet on the Piano   Jan 13, 2013

It's not the perfection in which
this piece was written, it's the musician-
hands invisible yet passion
bleeding when my ears hear and
flow into what I swallow,
and the beat of a much too intricate, scared heart
can weep.

In sixty-three notes, my memoir has
been understood like words connecting
to flesh.

I have needed this
to think of how I love...

    This is unique, in the inspiration as well as the portrayal, you always pen great pieces, and this was no exception, the melody and beauty was pretty remarkable.

    63 words expression the passion of how you wrote this piece while comparing it to one of a musician because it's true poems are notes heard by the heart...

    It's makes a melody and it's though to convey a message with restrictions. I wonder if the 63 words have any meaning other than what I can see in this piece.

      Thanks Luce! And no, they don't have another meaning...I was just listening to piano solos and got inspiration from that- I made up the number and then wrote the poem in that many words :]
