A free style poem based on the song piano man by billy joel


The only thing the bar patrons and I share

but when the piano man plays

we all feel connected

The music reveals the truth that we don't want to admit

We are lonely

It's not a sin or weakness

But it's always kept a secret

When the piano is singing

The bar is silent

We are connected by the music of loneliness

By the piano man

Who proves that you are never truly alone
