Broken Chords

On a very silent hot summer night

You were a howl of cold wind passing by

Carrying a musky scent of the rain

I was a key that could use a little tuning

It’s been a while since I’ve felt worthwhile

Like the Moon turned away from sunlight

I ease the pain by playing on the wild side

Running astray towards the purpose of my life

Broken chords breaking silence of the night

Different keys ringing at their own time

Ringing rain breaking silence of the night

Different drops falling at their own time

Now I can see the moon shining in the rain

I don’t feel the need to ease the pain

Broken chords gently weeping in the night

Making moonlight waltz in the sky

Broken chords breaking silence of the night

Different keys ringing at their own time

  1. Welcome and thanks for joining us at this Open Link Night. This poem is definitely also a song. I enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme and especially like the internal rhyme/repetition in ‘It’s been a while since I’ve felt worthwhile’, which lends a melancholy tone to the poem, as does ‘Broken chords breaking silence of the night / Different keys ringing at their own time’.

  2. Broken chords and different keys can be a harsh reality. The poet Mary Oliver said something like “You gave me a dark box of dreams, and only later did I realize it was a gift”. In retrospect, so often true.
