Don't Interrupt the Music

Dissonance is delegating the intensity in my eyes Minor chords unveil the passion my body can’t belie Eighth notes are lightning sparks that burn my finger tips And when you play Fminor7 I tend to bite my lips. I want you to scale my thighs the way you play A minor harmonic Deftly wrenching haunting moans Experiences anything but platonic Allegro Legato Crescendo Vibrato Sing to me in Italian and tell me to hold my tongue But if anyone interrupts the music … a piano's lid comes crashing down--the last note never sung.

I love the tone and the ending of this piece, Krystal! There is something doubtlessly romantic about music, even the technical aspects. Yet, the imagery of the final line slams home both notions well: that creshendo requires committment to the moment. Well done! Warm regards, John.
