Melodic Curse

I draw you in like oxygen
My heart a wall of glass
It’s getting hard to breathe now
With all the fog and anthrax.

For you it would be easy
Me, I’m not that strong
Living in the moment
Before the moment is long gone.

My tongue is tied,
I’ve swallowed my pride
But it’s getting harder to hide
All of these feelings inside.

I cry out
But no sound parts
Like a steel drum
My heart is a melodic curse.

I taste blood on my lips,
I’m dying for mercy
So please forgive me,
If it’s not too late.
I haven’t been myself;
You’ve been nothing but great.

I draw you in like music,
Care to dance along?
Try to live for the music
Before the music is long gone.

But every song ends,
Every note strung,
Like a steel drum;
My heart is a melodic curse
That sounds but never mends.



About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
