Painful Melodies

If only they made

Music for the

Type of pain

That won’t settle,

Melodies that can

Merge a broken

Heart back together

Once the war of the

Roses are shattered

Into scattered rose pedals,

The symphony that

Feels sympathy for the

Sad in the most

Simple proximity,

An essential sorrow

Summarized by hostility

Through the sounds

Of saxophones mixed

With vocal harmony,

The sounds that won’t

Bring harm, only

Propagates tranquility

– Nick F. Hawkins
