I am written

like the lyrics

of a song

intended to be

sung and played

with music


I am the song

that stretches

from stanza to

chorus and

the end


Sing me in

the morning

when the sun

is flaming


Sing me

at night

when the moon

is dancing


All of me

I am in tune

My rhapsody

is haunting you

    ♥ I fell in love with this poem starting from “I am written like the lyrics”. That is a profound opening line. Good job! Love, Kay Lynté
