breath of wind

and when I hear
hear something so
hauntingly beautiful
. . .
it threads
threads
. . .
weaves
. . . .
a tendril
into my heart . . .
cutting a path
catching my cloying breath
curling a spiral
of expanding winding beauty
that only music has the fucking /audacious /power /to /trespass
to arrest
to rip open
and bleed
the will
the will that says I will not
I will not t t t t . . .
yet weakly
lets go of futilities
as melodic beauty seeps in
encircles
closes its hand
cups it palm
around
my kneading
and my small quick breath
that is
a
wordless head shaking/ fucking/ helpless/ pleading
and i
. .
find
I wish
I wish
so bad
to whisper
. . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . .
so
many
things ~
that will
never
be e e
I am
an unsung symphony
oh no don’t let me be
don’t let me
be . . .
I will be
alone I pulse with
ripped root fingertips
. . .
that curl a spiral
tip
of a tiny wave
sent . . .
but never fully reaching
the shores
of home
to inhabit
my home in your heart
it no longer has a roof
becomes a box
without a lid
it is a box
without a lid
filled
with only the breath of wind
utterly homeless
unowned and free
seeking it’s own wandering rhythm
again . . . .
