Music Lit

Each note pinched
A candle lit.
Each chord explosion
Trembling flames.
An octave grown
Drip of wax.
All notes screeched
Fire consumes.
Silenced air.
Silenced mind.
Each breathing beat
Each candle dies.
Eyes do close.
Melody begins
Then a song.
Growing tune
Away the flames.
Just the music
Alone with me.
