No sweet songs tonight,
Discordant thoughts
Wail upon this stage.
Howling, harsh,
Jarring chants of
Petty detachment,
Thievery and decievery,
And the award goes to...
The measured, orchestrated
Performance by a minstrel,
For "Icebox Masquerading as Flame",
A tune want of harmony and humanity,
One which has transposed
The sweet soprano song
That had dwelt within me,
To a hollow, sepulchral dirge,
Of weeping, of lamenting
as my sickened heart searches for lyric,
Finding only double-tongued dissonance,
And grating, metallic sounds.

Kris,
     it's funny ins't it how those that we take into our lives as being in harmony with us can all of a sudden make us very discordant and dissonant. . . I hope that your heart finds it's melody again soon, my friend. . .

This was an excellent poem with wonderful use of the musical imagery. . . well done. . .
