words of music glued to me

I am wearing the words of music
notes reverberate in my mind
screen doors watch silently
I throw the wilted flowers
on the earthy ground
someone will come and pick up those
scents of elusive nostalgia will assail him
giving rise to a storm.
that storm which you left behind
along with that felted quilt
I lie on it once in a while but it has no warmth
you took that with you
leaving the notes of music
wrapped in my body for eternity

I like a lot of this, some very effective lines; assailed by scents, quilts that give not warmth... very nice.

Oh, the sad words of loss when all the hopes of love are shattered as if by a storm. The warmth of the others presence...yes that is sorely missed. I really liked this piece.

Wonderful poem. And I say that as someone who worked as an oboist for years.

Wearing music... and the song is sad, I take it. Love the imagery of the quilt no longer exuding warmth...

These are the lines that resonated most for me:
"I am wearing the words of music"
and
"screen doors watch silently"

I got lost a bit in the poem, though, and wonder how it would read with stanza breaks.

Good work. Keep writing.

Gautami,

Welcome back. Both poems show a lot of emotion, particularly in this one which shows how one feels on being betrayed.

Take care
