The Elegy

i'm looking
to be pushed too hard
and stretched thinner
than air
so I can melt the concrete
in your eyes
into something
i can use

you think
you're the one
writing the song
i've been singing
so many years
before now
because you've discovered
the harmony
in my dissonance

but
this is not
some simple tune

it's a lament
- an elegy -
my ending
made into music

a measure here
is nothing but noise

- scattered dots unconnected -

if you finally unravel
how to carve
the ascension into me
the gift will be my tongue
wrapped in red silk

and I will be mute
from that moment on,
the composition
complete
