Like fallen stars from the heavens
To rain down from our bitter eyes.
I didn't want to listen anymore but,
I couldn't block out the melody.
It tore through my heart with its sorrow
Burying itself deeply into my soul,
I wanted to escape into silence's embrace
Instead I was forced to endure the rhapsody.
I watched her standing alone, so close
With muted wails twisting her face with tragedy.
I drew back still entranced, but afraid
A great deal of horror would be needed
To change a person's future for the worst.
On and on she played well into the night,
The notes stirring the air like burdened whispers
So seductive to their audience they can't let go.
It was a different tune from ancient times
A mourning that refuses to pass on and let her find
A new path to travel beyond loneliness
It seemed as if she was doomed to play on forever
Her eyes gleaming with unshed pain,
Memories filtering into the air around her.
I watched her until the stars faded into morning
Before I, too, turned and left her to a forgotten world
I couldn't take away her burden, so I would forget.
I would go and never come back to see
The girl with the sad eyes playing a violin
To a song with no words, just tears
