When the piano bleeds pain
loss, angst, lost love, love hurts,
It's 3 am,
her pillow soaked in regret.
Loss has left her spirit lonesome,
darkness a definition of insanity.
In the silence of the night,

Pained piano keys compose
a chorus-less composition.
Melancholic moods crave
to sway back and forth
like bluebells and lilies dancing,
when kissed by the morning breeze
this was me
angst, confusion, introspection, life, loss, sad,
it began so innocently
we exchanged ideas on poetry

he preyed upon my compassion
as he meticulously bided his time...
i felt safe as...
