Out of Tune

Striking the wrong chords
A noise of unattainable words
No longer a musical composition
The bow vibrates too slow
Hopping over the strings
Fingers too stiff to sound sweet
This process of scribing
Become sucking rhythm from stone
Bumpy staccato scratches
Verse pulled unwillingly onto the page
The melody beating in my heart
Harmonious symphony
Imprisoned by lost language
In the misty haze of my mind
