Piano (day 145)

It’s like an explosion,

this music,

like I can’t speak in any other way

but through the simple stretch of an octave or two

My fingers play out everything we are

our spark painted over these dusty keys


If you open your eyes too wide

you’ll lose your mind

so I’ll keep mine half closed,

blind but I still step true

because this is what I follow


I’m always learning, stumbling

Even if I can’t play the right music

for every moment you’re the soundtrack to this road,

there’s still a beat in the background

emerging from our shattered hearts

and it’s still lyrical.
