~~Dark Music~~

Tormented,
twisted;
shrill
and discordant,
notes
falling
harshly
on
unfamilar
ears.
Muscian's
nightmare;
sharp
and off-key,
hopelessly
lost
always
on
daytide
listeners.
Howling,
haunting;
crazed
and inhuman,
begging
again for
silence
the
unfortunate
audience.
Unholy,
maddening;
diving
and climbing,
rising
like
screams
and always
to me
beautiful.
