She is a one woman symphony.
Her touch covers all of the right gaps
in the broken flute I call my spine, her lips
are so beautiful; they trumpet her beauty
before she has the chance to speak, and her heart beats
to the percussion of my emotions. But, as of late, when she plays
the violin, I prefer her to do it with no strings attached—
because I know when her love for me dies, her music will be even more alive.
