I'm playing a song tonight on my keyboard.
I wish you could hear it.
It is a song of heart and hopelessness. It is a song of loss and loneliness. It has a tune that is not mine, with words that don't rhyme.
It speaks of a heart that can't feel and of wounds that won't heal.
It is the song of my soul. It's beyond my control.
It's been a long day, and the only tune that comes to my fingers is this terribly sad, haunting melody that insists on being played. I wonder what it means. All I know is that it soothes me, in a strange and cold way.
Forgive the disjointed post. Like I said, it's been a long day.
