Strings of a departing melody's
Wilting hints of a rain wrought
Cloudless night
As she lays, a footless dancer
In a stumbling waltz's trance
Warriors' songs weep by

Her mediocre symphony
A world premiere for him
That he never got to hear

Lackluster tears of a prayer forgotten
Whistle on the stage
Silver imperfections smeared
Into the fake acrylic wind
And the audience laughs
