One Note Song
Sometimes I feel like a one note song,
A boring melody
And the note is wrong
I’m in the wrong key
Something is wrong with me
My friends smile and say I’m being silly,
That my melody is complex,
That these problems are only in my head.
I smile too, but not truly through
I pretend to be comforted and feel better so,
And my one note continues the show
Oh, how I wish I had sharps and flats—
Musical things like that.
And some days I swear the note does change
The melody moves and dances,
I’m finally feeling sane.
But soon after I wake from the dream,
And my melody is ripped in between.
The one note continues to splat and squeal,
Screaming the secret things I often feel
---pain, pain, betrayed, hurt---
And what’s worst-
The one note I won’t let go,
For it’s the only one I’ve ever known.
