The Melody Of Your Soul

I read music in your eyes,
Delicate chorale filled your voice,
The melody of your soul,
Breathed hymn into my life;

Each movement measured note by note,
Dancing fingers played across my keys,
‘Twas not a symphony filled the silence,
But a quartet caressing strings;

Hosannas rose into the night,
Angelic host proclaimed,
Cantata filled my ears,
Notes kissed me in refrain;

No interval could unpair us,
Nor dissonance render harsh,
The canon of desire played,
Crescendo in each march;

And when the ruby of your lips
Pressed love’s red blush to mine,
Tympani’s thrumming pulsing beat,
Marked two hearts beating side by side in time.

    A symphony of words sharing love. What an incredibly fortunate couple this is. Magical. “breathed hymn into my life” So often hymns are full of lyrics and tones expressing a spiritual love and you added into a romantic love. Bravo, Will. Bravo!

    I loved it. The extended music metaphor replicated by the symphony of sounds your word choice creates as well as the melodic rhythm. Perhaps the poem could end at side? It keeps the rhythm balanced and fluid. Or maybe you disagree? Great poem nonetheless
