 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


last symphony Pictures, Images and Photos

Cymbals crash
inside her head
like the denouement
of a magnificent, but
brutal overture

punctuating the end
of a long interval
of internal

she keens

why won't
this sound stop
echoing within me

taunting me,
challenging me
to try, just try
to forget him
to pretend
it's over

But it is

Music notes Pictures, Images and Photos

Yet, in time
as this movement
of her emotions fades
there begins a new
quickening sense

anticipation building
inside the long,
silent halls
as if the notes
of love lingering
in her damaged soul
are simply waiting

for the perfect
composer to piece
her heart back together

for the perfect
instrument to play it,

continue this symphony

so she stands baton raised
conductor of her own life
breath held


for love
