" for miles "

              the melody of haunting notes
               will taunt you-re inner ear

              this sadness___ you can-not weep
                   no matter how hard
                      tears flow

                     haunting notes
                     inside and out
                       but still
                   within the inner ear

                   this sad haunting
                 that will not dis-appear
