Lullaby

by Ironic Allure   Sep 25, 2005


That same song is perfect still,
The rhymes in every line,
The rhythm of your heartbeat,
All twirl and intertwine.

Closing out all other sounds,
Just you and music alone,
A place where you find comfort,
The only place that's home.

Blurred together; Every line,
The lyrics wrote for you,
Head in hands you listen well,
To the same repeated tune.

You play it when you're lonely,
It always jerks those tears,
A song still strumming heart-strings,
After all these many years.

Gentle tunes are clearly sung,
Muffled through your cries,
Lines that echo your memories,
Seen through troubled eyes.

Now the ending of this melody,
Chords that draw out pain,
Finally end their comforting,
And you're at square one again.

All is quiet, but you still hear,
That same perfect song,
Now everyone will let you down,
But the lullaby plays on.

    I am amazed at this poem. It is so very true.
    This stanza, I find, is the best:
    "You play it when you're lonely,
    It always jerks those tears,
    A song still strumming heart-strings,
    After all these many years."
    ^So perfectly worded..and so very true. It's beautiful and sad all at once. I definitely feel this way about certain songs. You captured the emotion perfectly. The ending is also fabulous. What a great poem. Keep it up! =]

    This poem is brilliant:

    That same song is perfect still,
    The rhymes in every line,
    The rhythm of your heartbeat,
    All twirl and intertwine.

    ^^^The first stanza had be captivated straight away, the flow and the pace are just perfect.

    Well done on a superb piece of writing.
