Song of Desolation

My life is plagued with sadness
Maddening depression that has sworn to drive smiles away from my face
Those that have birthed me have stolen every bit of happiness away from me
They birthed me together with forlornness; and have tasked me to stay by the side of my twin

I am an island; surrounded by things of no interest to me
I am forbidden from the things I love
My passion has been exiled
Cursed to roam the foreigner’s lands – never to return home again

I am a prisoner; locked in an eternal cage of solitude
I am chaff, blown in different directions by the wind of my masters
I will nothing of my own; and sing only songs of my masters
My life is defined by the wishes of my twin
I tell you; loneliness knows me by name

PIANOFORTE

An instrument of love is what you are

An epitome of romance in every clef and bar

You are black and white; your music is yea and yes

No chance for a grey area, to present to us its curse

An avenue, where every stroke radiates an ambiance of love

And every sound summons a musical being above

“I am the god of music!” exclaims Apollo

And my device of love, you all must adore and follow.
