Your heart is like the sound of a solo violin
Whether that violin is playing a soft, gentle tune all to itself, or letting out a woeful cry
I can tell only by looking at you, or seeing those soulful eyes
That you are hurting
But even when the song is sad, that violin always sounds so beautiful.

You look at me with love and emotion ineffable
And I hear that violin, even now
One lingering note of this melody brings me to my knees,
Never in my life have I heard music so lovely.

Your one sound is the softest in all the world
Other instruments drown you out in their crescendos, and you are never heard
But here in this silent room, I hear your gentle hymn.

As you look back at me, the violin's sweet cry increases in volume
And quivers with a sweet, quiet joy
So peaceful and loving, it echoes on forever
Lingering on long after its instrument is gone.

So deeply, my heart is pierced
The entire world seems to move through me
This one song makes me part of something greater than myself
And greater than the world
For never again will I feel this close to Heaven.

Let the cry of my own heart's voice swell and rise with yours in song
For you are my Only
I would never feel so worthy of this duet
If you hadn't made me part of you.

I will hear this music forever
And so will I love you, my One
Long after life has come to an end
For always you will play me this eternal hymn
On your one violin.
I know I never post literature, and this doesn't even follow iambic pentameter or rhyme

But I was listening to the October Sky soundtrack (best movie ever)

And I was inspired to write.

We totally just watched October Sky in science class!

I had completely forgotten about that movie beforehand. (My uncle had rented it for us on vacation when I was five)

From one poet to another. It was wonderful, the sentimental meaning behind it seems deep and tragic almost. I could see almost all the metaphors you used for the violin. It is a beautiful instrument, isn't it? I actually have one, I can only play country on it though, my mother on the other hand... XD
flyingfault Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
wow, you happened to pick one ofmy favourite instruments! do you or someone you know play?

I love the rhythem of the piece, and I hope you do more!

I may not like violins, but the style is something I like. It's like human speech, but not slang or anything like that. I think this piece of yours borders between poetic composition and public speeches.

That is a wonderful poem :+fav:

Beautiful. That's all I can say. It takes my breath away. Violins are beautiful instruments too, even if I only play the piano.

Congrats on the front page!

Some honest critique: (that means good stuff too!)
You have very strong imagery, which is a fantastic starting point for a poem. Your metaphors are great as well--I love the word "duet" used, especially. In my opinion, with the musical theme, it might have been nice to have a nice Ballad structure of a poem, or at least some sort of structure--you may want to consider some meter and organization. Also, it seems as if your punctuation is used a little oddly--you don't have to put a period at the end of every stanza, and you could certainly have more if you think the poem should pause for a moment. Read it out loud to yourself, and the pauses should present themselves naturally.

I hope this quick comment was helpful, and I hope you continue to write poetry!

Poetry doesn't have to follow any rhyme or reason. Sometimes it is nice, but often times, it's just a way to hold back expression.
Jade-Pandora Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
quite the contrary...

it can be the floodgates releasing all that a soul can offer.
