The Music Plays On – A Quadrille

The Music Plays On

Our music plays
I hear it, always 
But it falls
on your deaf ears
You no longer smile
remembering where it
once took you
Now you march to 
a different tune
and I stand here
wondering
Is this the end
of our love song?

    Unfortunately romance is so often like that. It’s similar to the way musical groups, once so perfectly cohesive, fall apart eventually for lack of things in common

      Yes, Larry like any kind of partnership. Sad, but that is life 😯

    As others have said, the sadness in your poem hits, deeply.

    Sometimes it creeps in and sometimes it’s a 2×4. Whichever way it happens, the pain is unbearable 🙁
