The Music Plays

the beginning of  a sad melody.

The incense’s cherry

glows, and is

the only indicator

that there’s light within the darkness.

The music

–a taunting lullaby in her ears–

as she holds herself,

and doesn’t fight the tears.

So many years,

she thinks,

have I done this;

telling myself Shhh.


will be okay.

The music plays,

as she whispers to herself again

–a wistful tune

that matches

the state of her heart;

the lyrics of

her broken spiritual.
