A Life in Strings

Born from silence on the vibration of small strings, your young life gathers tempo; childhood days by the pool become teenage nights by the sea.

The Notes of Life flow through you; the notes gather pace as the wind whispers of love’s first blush.

Feelings set in on the vibration of louder strings, then gather momentum as the notes move into place. Love takes over, becoming so loud that your heart might explode.

Then the feeling is gone; you know what it is to be an adult now. Sadness sets in as the strings slow down; you learn to pull yourself apart.

Then the Notes of Life gather pace; you wish the sea would dash you against the rocks, for your heart might explode.

Pain moves along the strings as thoughts of darkness and light ebb and flow. You know who you are as the strings soften and your life gathers pace.

Then the strings produce a heavy sound, and you cannot understand what the vibrations mean as you struggle against the tide; the sea holds your heart.

You see him standing there.
You’ve never felt this way.
Your whole heart of strings vibrates, for you have found your soulmate.
