Sheet Music

I never understood sheet music

the notes would fly at me

like a foreign language

abstract and garbled in my head


You wrote me a letter

filled with music

symphonies and full notes

that I could not decode


How can I play your song

with my tone deaf fingers?

So I kept it within my heart

shaping it into a music box

that plays your melody


I’ve written this in response to Sadje’s What do you see #143

Since 143 in text language means ‘I love you’ what’s more fitting than a love poem?

I’m getting back to writing, I kind of hate the fact that I took a month break, it disrupted my creative flow.
