• “Little Ivory Bars”

    Sit here to play the keys;

    the sound of my heart 

    trailing down my cheek. 

    Saltwater drops on a crisp, 

    white cotton sleeve. 

    Roll it up with a deep breath

    in between notes.

    Little ivory bars 

    carry the anguish 

    of unspoken cries 

    as they twist and strain, 

    becoming something beautiful.

    Longing to be heard correctly. 

    Ebony to give balance and depth.

    Always a dance 

    between the dark and the light.

    That’s where the mind’s fight lies.

    Never escaping the endless circle. 

    Someday it will end,

    but then my words might leave.
