Composition of Patience

“You must learn how to compose!”

“But I am dearest, let me play for you…listen.”

She almost made love to the instrument that’s how beautiful the notes were, but they fell on deaf ears he was nowhere to be seen.

“Be patient he will return to listen.”

Notes spilled through the temples that were more beautiful than golden statues, but who heard them?

She played on and on waiting for the music to be heard.

“Write your words in harmonic melodies, do so and he will be sure to listen.”

Months and years went by and the songstress wrote magnificent pieces, and still she waited for him to listen. Did she dare question where he was? They told her soon, improve and you will be rewarded and be heard.

He was a wise one, knowing that she ‘could’ do it and many ‘would’ listen, but his life wasn’t boorish and moved faster than the winds of a tornado.

There were more relevant things to be done. To assume she would still be waiting for his ears to listen wasn’t even comprehensible. You see they all tire of the wait and move on, it’s a given in music and prose.

Except for the statue that was placed in the courtyard where she practiced and practiced. The statue smiled when she walked away, and surely had listened.

there is a story of a man who lived his whole life only to find out he was wrong. I don't know what this has to do with your piece. just a free floating thought. :)
