A musical symphony.

Beat the note,

Each soft key.

Feel the rush that crescendos

In a symphony, I am lost.

Of her haunting melody,

I tune by genius;

And genius --

That is she.

Hear the treble tremor,

The ebb and flow of notes.

Note the progression,

In accordance with thee;

The ever-climbing scale,

Comes crashing in a harmony.

The resonance,

It burns

A place deep within.

The siren song

Teases terribly,

Tempting tempo

To come in

The stunning fanfare

Fills you

The ending flourish roars,

Fanning flames

That lift you,

Caress you,

Make you soar...
