alternating black and white, blowing in my hair


the first time i felt your breath
i fled into the fields
testing the life within me

but i came back for the music
that i never noticed i loved
you won me over
with repeated playing

i found myself in your whispers
i heard how life could be
i learned how i could feel
it was something i wanted for myself

i returned to where i first heard you sing
i never thought i d find it again
but i felt guided

run your fingers over these keys
alternating black and white

i was distracted by the dissonance
did you leave me or did i wander away
but there you were again
blowing in my hair

i waved and i saluted
playing your songs again
until the breaking of the keys

you had blown away again
but you would always roar back

and i would play on
