Falling in perfect syncopation to his

broken heart’s rhythm

He brushes and strokes

her wooden, stoic face –

Searching desperately for perfect pitch

And balanced harmonies

between hurt and healing

hope and helplessness

Listening carefully to the timbre

and tone of her raised voice

Hearing the resonance

hang thick in the air

Only to dissipate slowly

Fading long after the last

words he wanted to say

Became the words she

put into play.

    I’m flattered. No one has ever written a poem about me. And it captured what I was feeling when the pic was taken. Thank you!
