Piano to Silence

Godless night of inspiration

Temptation of the finest

Slipping through fingers’ tremors

Embers pressing back against

Sounds rising past the surface

Nervous twisting tendons hot

Racing mental powers frantic

Romantic chords spinning wild

Waiting whispers tasting calm

Balm upon the sacrifice

What’s given the inspired

Desired, abandoned, lost

Then the light to save the hand

Brand of fire on the soul

To repeat? Another night

Right inside inspired motion

Married, breathing, the pleasure

Treasure by the tempted sound
