These Words Do Haunt My Soul
Music flows within my veins
Its lifeblood to my soul
My being dances in the rain
My voice drifts in the wind
Birds they sing, they speak to me
Their music I imbibe
My soul it floats on currents high
My mind it is recharged
I smell the flowers as they bloom
A fragrance dear to me
My memories stir with my mind
The past relives itself
The wind refreshes, cleanses me
I love to feel its song
On mountain or by ocean wide
It makes my senses soar
A tear it winds its downward path
Preceding many more
Discouragement doth cleave my heart
It tears my mind apart
They say that positiveness helps
To lift the spirit high
To draw you from the muddy grasp
Despair doth have on you
To a sing a song to gaze on high
To drown in natures bliss
But oh the battle you do face
In melancholy's arms
She twists your heart within her grip
Seducing words she spews
And oh how tempting they do seem
When wrapped within her arms
A doleful dirge I tend to sing
My visions clouds with pain
The sun hath vanished from my sight
The rain of sorrow falls
If only now the dance would end
If life would slip from me
Relief from anguish, sorrow, pain
Release from misery's kiss
The music plays the dance goes on
The room it fills with woe
Sadness oozes from each note
While tears flood the room
Music spirals down and down
Darkness wraps its cloak
Remorse and sorrow throb within
While we entwine as one
Melancholy dances slow
Each step I feel such pain
I shrivel in her tightening grasp
While music clouds my brain
A window opens to sunlight
I hear a bluebird sing
The scent of roses fills the air
My spirit then did soar
The music's gone my partner left
The room hath disappeared
Another day she will return
Her music haunts my soul
