Your Lost Song

Your Lost Song

A Poem by Shay33

Symbolic poem written from the point of view of a guitar.


I sit here, waiting

In the cold

Aged and broken,

Stained and old.

Longing for

Your eager embrace,

A moment that I

Am anxious to face.

As I rest, dust gathers

In an even coat,

And I dream of the songs

That, upon me, you wrote.

My neck still feels pinches

From once-present fingers,

And, although it hurts,

Your presence still lingers.

So I'll dream of the chords

That you used to strum,

And the softest of melodies

You'd playfully hum,

And I'll wait in this closet

For however long,

Until you feel the temptation

To play your lost song.

Just love to write... and don't like sharing my writing with anyone I know in real life. Haha. I'm pretty open, accepting, opinionated yet open-minded, and pretty easy to get along with, if I say so m.. more..
