Heart break

I heard you play your guitar

The song played wept in the wind

So I listened,

As your fingers, broken ploughed through the cords

Ceaselessly, back and forth, your palms moved

Tearing away the pains that clung to your soul

The clouds sailed away with each tearful stroke

And I hope your pain too…
