Play my heart as an instrument of your choice,
I can hear the distance in your voice...

Play the guitar with my strings of hope,
Play it gently or otherwise, I lack the will to cope!

Play the drums with the beats of my swollen heart,
Play the ending to what didn't even start!

Play my soul as a trumpet, make melodies or just noise,
I guess feelings can be manipulated into simple toys!

Play the flute following the notes of my pain,
Play me as you please, play me once again!

Play me tender, play me sweet,
Play me in your solitude or in the street!

Play me as you wish and as you may,
I just hope you're proud of the mess you play!

I also love this one. :D
Especially the part where it says:
'Play me as you wish and as you may,
I just hope you're proud of the mess you play!'
Beautifully well written. ^-^
