Poetry: A Particular Pause
How a long lost love becomes forgotten
during a resonant lonely pause on a piano
and any note sounding a remembrance
ceasing a certain pause on a particular piano.
The utter beauty of haunting notes…whispers
of their love from that sweet April night
lulling and comforting this lingering music
lingers and envelops a forlorn lover.
And (ever present and ominous) a particular
pause on a certain piano harkens their fate
so go cherished fading memories as the
present is no longer eclipsed by what was.
