What Music Played (poem)

Updated on August 20, 2014

What music played to draw him out that night

To settle heart which had so much to bear

A gentle scent left floating in the air

Amid the darkness soothing hope of light


What melody removed his soul from care

And took all meaning from his senses’ sight

What song of promise called to hold him tight

To make a moment she would have to share


That day the couple let their feelings go

So vicious were the words of bitter heat


The pain of tears reveals each mindless blow

Till in their darkness they would both retreat


What tune played next no one will ever know

They found his body laying in the street

      Wow, this is very deep and has a tragic ending. I didn't expect this one, but it is a picture or reality in some situations.

      Well, Martin, you have surprised us with another talent.

      Mystery and intrigue wash over this masterful piece of work.

      The music perfectly accompanies this dark and foreboding poem.

      Your work is complete.
