The Last Note

 In the other room
She’s playing the piano

 I sit in the dark
Listening

Questioning
How I could have changed
Her desperation

 Melody of madness

 Sleeping separately
In crimes to the other
Habit and escapism

 Loving the idea of love
But dwelling in the underlying hum
Of when we were young

So quiet now
Outside our open windows
Wind whispering through the trees

Night of the backside moon
Dancing leaves twirling
Slower and slower

Each tap of the piano key
Something near beautiful but haunting
In the lingering sound of us.

Stephen Jarrell Williams loves to write in the middle of the night with a grin and grimace and a flame in his heart.  He is the editor of Dead Snakes at deadsnakes.blogspot.com

Stephen Jarrell Williams’ “The Last Note” has a Byronic and Gothic
quality of musical romanticism which envelops and intoxicates as it smiles on us. Congratulations.
