A song that seeks

Trapped in the corners of her heart

lies a song

seeking a sound, yearning for a voice, searching an expression

a song

that beholds a sky unseen, unexplored.

Beaten rugged syllables clash and fail to form a word

every time the song tries an escape.

Since times long and forgotten

the song has been meandering its way to you


yet every time

it trembles in her throat

crackling in her voice

rasping in her breath

threatening her sanity

it cries to doors unseen

boulder-ing her path

open, open

break the facades of indifference

break the barriers

bring down the walls

open, open

your arms, your hearts

let me in…

Trust me, said the song, now almost shy

I bring joy, love and prosperity

And she looked away!
