peace from dead skinned fingers

It's minor keys that resonate, I'll stay up late and wait
then in between the silence I'll hear the sound
of steel and cedar, the slow rebound
wrapping around my reflective heart
and so it comes,this slow release
brings me peace in dead skinned fingers.
It's me who lingers unanswered and unsolved
even after prayer wheels have been revolved.
The answer is not to doubt at all,
to take our backs from off the wall,
but still these shapes take precedence,
a permanent tenement residence
of twos and blue toned cadence.

That perfection goes unnoticed
would be easier to bare
if there was someone there to share
the exquisite madness and requisite gladness
who's roots draw from melancholy 
but the apple that fell on me
knocking sense into me
bruising my head
releases me, brings peace to me
instead.

    I think this is my favourite of your poems so far. As someone who can't play the guitar to save her life, I am intrigued by this description of music making. You really are in your zone when you write about songwriting. Write more soon! (And thank you for your sweet comments today. It took a long time for me to decide to put my poetry out there, so I really appreciate feedback like yours!)

    Thanks Debbie, the only thing i wonder is if there is somewhere with a way of understanding all the forms when we post. Not being a scholar i do not understand what the forms and therefore how to classify mine. Thanks for welcoming me.
