A Chair and Music

A Chair and Music

How deep in pain I met the day,
Yesterday’s old emotions had gone into play,
To top the mood, the skies were gray,
My mind toppled into past forays.

Drifting, not thinking, just in pain,
What could I do to undo the past,
Knowing full well the impossibility,
Hoping, praying, this mood would pass.

To have a “chair” is a heavenly thing,
To leave the world to think, to dream,
Music loved without voice or clash,
To leave the world to think, to dream.

Minutes passed and quarter hours,
Conjuring visions of coming spring flowers,
When recalling Your gifts – I had let You go.
Paints and brushes saved my soul long ago.

I picked up an old brush and then a tube,
While music washed me, changed my mood,
And I spent time away from my guilt-filled place,
When I came back, You were there with Your grace.

To leave the world to think, to dream.
And find that your hell was not what it seemed.

Hello Sunlite, Superbly crafted!! And your ending couple is perfect. The integral back drop of "a chair" and "music" makes your poetic narrative all the more interesting. A FAVE TOO!! Best Always, Gary

How beautiful it is to know that a "seat" and art can transport a person to a better state of grace.

Your poem roams with past emotions..and enjoys the comfort of music and flowers, and paints and brush. A creative walk into memory lane..well articulated, SW.
