Melody of the Heart

Bright melodies explode into action within the first few measures
Dancing all over the staff, jumping up before crashing down,
Only to slowly climb their way back up again.
Unusual rhythms beat into the heart of the song, causing unexpected periods of rest.
Perfectly blended harmonies melt in sync with the tune,
As all the while an underlying dissonance lies below.

The key switches from Major to minor.
Haunting melodies now grace the stage.
Mournful notes cry out in agony.
No longer is there joyful dancing,
As step by step the song descends

A crescendo.

The tempo picks up,
Racing along as fast as the wind,
Minds lost in the enchantment of the whirlwind melody.
Following their hearts.
But the music can’t last forever.

Left unnoticed, the darkness surrounds the light
And within seconds, everything crashes down, yet again.
Only this time without recovery.
A few whispering lines are all that remain
The song ends.

Very well done. I love music, and you expressed the feeling a song might have or give very well.

music is an art......

but this poem lends life and almost a sentience. Music being like a world in which songs live their lives like the mythological Pheonix, and the memory of those songs live on and the stories are told over and over again. Being a musician myself I like and have a deep appreciation for this piece.

Reserved for thoughts.

Terribly rushed but had to say that this is a wonderful piece. Music being an important part of my life, I love the themes expressed here.

Thanks for sharing this, gave you a +1 earlier.
