Air Guitar

I dare to pluck the air guitar

such a distant dream of being a superstar

I look down to fingers, eager to play

just one note, or two, but long to stray

into a melody, or an improvised song

just allowing the silence to help me along

instead I look down to my virgin hands

pick up my instrument to follow commands

but instead of a chord struck out in sound

the chord in my words may sometimes be found.
