Memories of violins

violins play duets
oblivious to the single
and lonely cello

violins play on,
wailing the night hours away
prolonging first light

…for melancholy
the sad violins shivered
shuddering their pain

melodies so sweet
my filling heart could explode
in countless splinters

inside closed eyelids
music can conquer the soul
all become as one

magical fingers
set free tonal notes of gold
caress strings of steel
