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

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.

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.
