Piano Fingers

Piano Fingers

A Poem by ~Dragon X

They're everywhere.


The piano and its chair

Someone arrives and sits there.

Looks around

No sound


Hopes he's not found.


With little more ease

The fingers brush the keys

But he's still scared

He no longer dared


But to play, he still cared.


Finally after one last glance

atop the stage he took his chance

Very, very quiet

Hushed as an owlet


Played a sonnet.


The fingers felt more free

 Willing to play crisply

Each note more defined

Each finger more inclined


Fingers and keys entwined.


Fingers play mystery,

Fingers play history,

Fingers play hate,

play love and fate,


These piano fingers create.

Well, I admit that I have been on a bit of writer's block, and I produced this trying to get out of it. o3o I might be a bit rusty, and I honestly don't know what anyone's going to think considering I haven't written in a while. XD But I wrote this in remembrance of my piano exam on sunday, and what people are capable of playing on it. :D So um, review please? :3

I am not a musician but I do love music and I love that this is from the perspective of the musician and not the listener. I like how the the 'fingers and keys entwined.' That's a true musician.

Wow, this was just amazing. I agree with Summer, being a musician myself, it is hard not to love this poem.

Oh how I wish I could play the piano. This poem was so marvelously composed, like a brilliant piece of piano music composed by Bach or Hisaishi.

Makes me want to learn the piano even better :)
Lovely lovely poem.

I am a piano player, and I loved how beautifully you described his inane talent to play piano. I actually kind of pictures him as some homeless child, sneaking into a theater, just to play his music for a ghost audience. Love it!

Wow, Dragon if you call this rusty, then what shall I call my poems from now on? This was great, and I loved the rhyming scheme. It was very nice. Good job. :)

The soft wording lends to the intricate use of language I enjoy your dancing around subjects, well done, good read.

I liked it a LOT, no I do not think you're getting rusty. :P My cure for writer's block is music. It works!!! :D As long as you don't have any distractions and it's a new, amazing song. :P

I thought it was amazing, and I like the rhyme scheme. I actually prefer rhyming poems though I can never seem to make any rhyming poems myself...

How'd ya do on your piano exam?
