The violence of the melody
Seeps through my skin
If skin were a thing I wore
Caressed by the moon
Underneath the flower’s bloom.

I am not the bass line
that drops in death.
Electrocuting lessons, word by word
Workin’ on those night moves
Only not.

Seeds of chords
The rhythm of life
Brave is not a word I know
The ocean is blue.

Jukebox in my head
Nocturnes played for you.
Song in my blood
Symphonies without you.
