Interpretation

Music is
A poem, a memoir, a novel.
Each song tells another story;
One that I find myself in,
One that I dream of
And contemplate
As the day grows longer
And the end draws near.

Music is
A movie,
A film.
The cast changes
Somewhere down the line,
Periodically,
As I grow older,
Wiser,
And more accomplished.

The plot of this movie
Remains the same
Until I reach a revelation,
A new meaning,
Hidden
In the lyrics.

The melody
Can alter the entire
Denotation
Of a song.
Add guitar,
And it shows no regret.
Add piano,
And it's no longer innocent
Or painless.
Take both away,
And it's an empty page,
Waiting for your interpretation
To fill the empty space.
