Soulful melodies (This aria really is a dirge)

happiness is a soulful song

whose lyrics I do not know

but its melody lulls me to sleep

every night, walks with me

on the stormy sea of my dreams

and leads me back to the light;

it is that poem whose verses

are all muddled up in my mind

yet niggles, knocking on the

door of memory, seeking to

come in. it is that ever elusive

strain playing on repeat โ€“

chords in crescendo crashing

crashing: the waves drowning

crashing in a noiseless

fall, pulling me to the bottom

in dulcet decrescendos;

a lift, a lilt, a tilt

a turn

a tune

a rhythm

a sigh

a cry

a tear

a crack

emotions spilling

staining the music

strains of falsetto

filling the air

this aria really

is a dirge.

  1. So, I behold…’Soulful Melodies’ and I think to myself…’Guess who’s in a dappy mood this magical Yuletide Holiday Season to spread some hearty cheers the way of his followers’; but that was just right before the letterings and words in the bracket hit me and I thought….’Mine bad….as it’d occured to me that I’d thought wayyyy too soon….I thought wrong! Tis just as well that Halloween’s circled back right around as the Narrator looks like he/she is feeling none holiday cheers and would choose rather to sing a sad song…a dirge, as opposed to a feel-good Christmas Carol! The sheer, total, absolute and infact; gross ‘hianity’ of it all! What cheek! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Great going Doc and Happy Holidays to you too!๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿ˜† This melodious compose rings out soo loud that it resounds and reverbrates throughout ‘Gloomsville’! *tsking

    I do however like that you did well to unleash some major…and am talking pure, raw and visceral emotions rippling through those lines with the accompanying imageries and analogies….the musical notes and terminologies; that aren’t only heart-stopping, but they also did well to reach…stretching deep into the core of the soul…soulful, thereby evoking such profound emotions! ๐Ÿ˜Žโค

    Sing on Gloomie, music suits you well! ๐Ÿ˜Makes you look more……terrifying? ๐Ÿ˜›Oh soooo gloriously!๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚


drop me a line, maybe?
