A Musical Voyage

A Musical Voyage short poem

Photo by frankieleon

Your mind can trap you, in places you don’t want to be
But music I have found, can always set you free

Music can make you regal, a person of royalty
Or the petal of a fragrant flower, the life of a bumble bee

It’s there when you feel broken, and many tears you weep
It’s in the gentle lullaby you sing your babe to sleep

You can rescue the fair maiden, on the stallion of your dreams,
Fly off into battle,on a dragons flaming wings

It’s in the mending, of a heart that’s torn asunder
Be the rain and lightening, that accompanies the thunder

Poised to fall,from the edge of my mind, the music from a song
Wrapped me in its warm embrace, it had been there all along

My mind can’t take me to places I’ve never been,
until the music comes along, and shows it where and when.

I was a teen at that time. The man was from my town; Had gone to the sea forty times; Was almost dead when found, And didn’t live longer than a day. Don’t know what happened that night. But, it
