I Am Weary of The Music

I Am Weary of the Music

Valerie Owens

Your fingers pluck at the strings of my heart

Like the musician and his mandolin

Perhaps my heart is out of tune,

For the song you play

Sounds no longer sweetly of blissful adoration

But rather, strange, and off-key,

Like the cacophony of deceit.

The mandolin is played with violent passion

And the cords are pulled ever tighter.

Please untangle your cold hands

from the weakening threads

of my now bleeding heart

I am weary of the music.
