Musical Deficiency

Musical Deficiency

My tunes fall short,
my voice does crack,
I cannot place an instrument.

I tried so long,
to be your song,
with each note I fell flat.

I saw the craving in your eyes,
for each melodious harmony.
I despised my feeble attempts.

If only I could play for you,
the songs you long to hear.
I wish I had the thing,
that gave that fill.

I cannot be your orchestra,
or the piano that you play.
My strings are broken,
my bow is bent in two.

If only my dance was enough,
my openness, my freedom you could adore.
If only my poems without a key,
could make that light in your eyes.

I have a melody for you,
I cannot get it out.
My words, my lyrics,
that whisper to your heart.

I wish they could come out,
as a beautiful songbirds chorus.
I wish I could play them,
while pounding on the drums.

My music plays in my mind,
It’s impossible to extract out.
It rolls off in my visions,
that I wish I could pour into you.

To satisfy the longing,
that’s in your soul.
I cannot obtain the lovely thing you need,
I am simple, plain and pure.
