Never date a musician
She’ll fall in love with you
Like a piece she heard in her sleep
A piece she’ll never write
She’ll memorize the cadence of your walk
How your footsteps become a staccato bounce
When you’re excited
She’ll know you like a concert f scale
Memorize all your accidentals
Your sharps and flats
Your highs and lows
She’ll know that when you’re angry, you’re a forte piano
You hit hard then get soft
Then angry and loud all over again
She’ll know there’s a chip in your third octave C# 
A dusty piano no one uses anymore but her
She’ll know which keys stick 
which ones to press to make you sing
And which ones she should avoid all together

She’ll wish she were a Fermata on a whole note
At the end of your lullaby
So that you’d hold her as long as you could
Before tapering off gently to sleep
