Poem: Music

music is my opus
it's the shield that i wear
a soulful of notes
music is my air


i see the world
in rhythm and refrains
with the sharps and the flats
i waltz in the rain

sing me your heart out
play a requiem mass
read the libretto
serenade me in brass

kiss me to a crescendo!
sing the chorus at last
