The music box keeps playing
His haunting melody-
It's the only thing that I have left
That screams of memories.
And every night without knowing why
I wind it up again,
Letting him cry me to sleep
As I wait for it to end.

Where once I saw sweet innocence
And his love so pure and true,
I now see horror, a sweeping black hole,
Thats' center is me and you.
Watching the ballerina dance,
My heart seems to beat in time.
I wonder if I would spin for you
If you whispered your quiet rhyme.

With your music box inside my head
I quietly pace the floor.
Remembering all the words you said
And how they're gone forever more.
But it strikes me at how the dancer
And myself are so confused-
So quickly there we both would spin
Every time you sang your tune.
#60 in my 100 themes adventure- Music.

I wrote this poem based on something I've been going through. I'm not going to go into detail, but really... This poem is about realizing that I was a dancer in his music box. I would've, might even still do anything for him.

Oddly enough, I was going to write almost this same thing today...I heard the ticking of the clock and my heart nearly beat when it ticked, but you beat me to the punch and about 2 days in advance =P

Beautiful.

Well I'm sure you could find some way to make it better :)
But it's ironic that you found this same muse... I'm glad you like it

A beautiful metaphor and a very compelling poem. I love the emotion and imagery and the fact that it was coherent. Very lovely! :)
