Heart String Sorrows

Heart String Sorrows

A Poem by Jack...

For a friend I have hurt deeply...played in the key of final farewell



Heart String Sorrows


Sadness plays my heart strings

With a bow of rosin’d guilt

Tear drops stain the notes upon the page


Sorrowed cello whispers

Of a soundless worry wilt

Harmonies distorted in this rage


Out of tune concertos

Fall as fractured cymbals blare

Steady as the beat of gathered pain


Broken mirror rhythms

Sit upon the favored chair

Misery in musical refrain


Violin’d distractions

Born of melodies so thin

Echoing performed apologies


A cappella opus

In a prelude to the hymn

Composed for you in all sincerity

Author's Note

I did not write this poem looking for sympathy. I am the ass here...

The out of tune harmonics of this write just doesn't fit to the beautifully tuned heart of yours jack.

Jack, this is a stunning write you have here. The feelings of pain and rage mixed with the music references bring those emotions to life. Great piece! :)

Jack, we have all been asses, at one time or another, in our lives. I know, I have. Even the worse offender is offered, a chance of redemption, in the penal system. Am wondering, would this be, the first step, in your redemption, from your transgression with your friend?

As LKGoode says, "an emotional, beautiful, flawless write."

Okay, well, I am speechless. And that is quite the accomplishment. I don't know you that well, but I cannot imagine --- anyway, I hope whatever it is can be fixed. As for the actual poem, an emotional, beautiful, flawless write.

beautiful metaphor played upon the strings of these words.

Jack this one tugs at my heart and makes me want to reach out and give you a big Noodley hug but I nnow that won't work at this moment in time. The offer still stands though.

Poignant piece with alot of emotion.

Posted 9 Years Ago

Oh Jack this is really beautiful and the sadness reflecting makes one feel the emotions. I hope this will comfort that friend.
