Another Night Without You

(Poem based on the painting “A Glass of Blue” by Mark Keller.)


My fingers create
Ivory dances 
For your soul.
My heart aches silently
The dissonance between us
Though you are near.


Never know 
If I’ll see you here again
I come
To play, for you.
Brandy won’t suffice
To take away your pain
I smell the smoke
Trails from your lips
I know
Another Friday night
He didn’t show, like before
I know
You tire of his excuses
But here I am
For you, I play.


Feel the harmony
Let it comfort you
Wrap my melody around you
Wish I could do more.
