Pull Me Out From Inside
by Lisa Forget
The music takes hold of me. I can do nothing but listen as it sweeps me away, one note at a time. The piano is slightly out of tune. The dissonance is heartbreakingly beautiful.
Poety entwines its rhymes with the musical lines and together they steal the breath from my lungs. I close my eyes. I see stars. I dream.
My emotion takes on colour and paints my mind's canvas with rich purples and blues and wisps of haunting shadows. Music builds, emotions swell until every colour dances with the light of the sun and moon and creates perfect harmony.
A stringed instrument cries a note of longing that pierces my soul. It fills my head with sober musings. I'm so happy I weep.
My tears fall in time with the chimes of the music box that has drifted in like a ghost from the past. It mends the hole in my heart.
The song pulls me out from inside.
I am forever haunted by it.
Never let it end.
