The Lonely Guitar

A Note From The Instrument.....

Here I sit in this corner,

Awaiting for a pick or a strum;

My strings are a little bit looser,

And my neck is a little bit lank.

If only I could resonate for just a while.

There is a need for harmony in the

Guitarist's life.

She has become lonely

While fighting rejection.

But if only I could brighten

Her with some melodic restoration,

Then the harmonization

From my frets to the bridge,

My fingerboard again has

A chance

To live.

The strums and the beat,

And finger picking so sweet.

From major chords to minor,

The seventh chords would

Sound much finer.

I can only hope this

Musician will pick me up

To play much more often,

Maybe every day.

This lonely guitar has not

A chance to please

Every ear with inspiration

To bring the heart a tune

Is all that is needed

To make the blues go away,.

      Thank you to everyone who read this poem. I felt it was a creative boost for me. I have really wanted to get some motivation to play my guitar again. Your responses have been the encouragement I need to get back into my playing. I know that it is my gift and I will share it all with you. I just have to get over my own stubbornness in doing the "video" process.

      Outstanding rendition at the point of view of the instrument.

      Lovely and compelling.

      I'm challenged. I am no longer physically able to play my acoustic guitar (my fave by far). However, I did get an electric one so as not to have to reach around the body (hurt my shoulder) but just straight down. Yet, even that one has been gathering dust. Thanks for reminding me. :)

      Very powerful poem for me, as I can no longer play my guitars. Thank you
