Cold Play

Last Christmas,
I gave him a Ninja Turtle ornament,
because he invited me over,
and I felt I should show up with something,
besides my musical ability,
and manic state.

We had been impromptu jamming,
on and off,
for months,
because I was alone,
and he was lonely.

He wrote songs,
they were really good,
and though his lyrics were simple,
he definitely was not.

He had a synthesizer,
there were only 61 keys,
27 fewer,
than the 88 I’m used to,
but it didn’t matter,
none of this did,
and inevitably,
that’s what mattered.

30-something female with a pen and a piano. Reading between the lines, sometimes skipping a few.

    A+- I don’t know how you do it. I think you’re saying short comings don’t matter,just the over all connection. How true. I’m waiting here on pins and needles. Let me know when it happens.
