Eye Scream

I tried to make the piano scream last night.
I struck the keys so hard,
that I could feel my fingers bruising more and more,
with each passing measure.
In that moment,
I don’t think I cared if they broke,
because,
I needed my song to be heard.

Ironic thing was,
it wasn’t even “my song”.
It was a cover of  “Lovesong” by The Cure.
And,
on this particular night,
I decided,
last minute,
on purpose,
to close my set with it.

So,
there I am,
pounding on the keys,
stirring up a symphony of sound,
when I realized,
the piano didn’t need to scream,
I did.

    She screamed and screamed and then sat still
    For she had a job to fulfill
    What stopped her – was- She
    For it surely wasn’t he
    So
    She faced the “music
    And the symphony took a different turn .

    I hope the writer gets his or her feelings out. The writer realized he or she needs to face and release feelings that have been bottled up. That’s a real step forward.
