Music, Commitment

Soft melodies tonight
There are limits to the light
Attainment, attractions smolder

Embers belove yellow's darker shades
Emitted on gentle command
By the keys of pianos
Or the black and white notes
That pass as letters

I give in
I've resisted
Loyalty was a dissonant chord
Until the shadows danced on your
Furrowed brow

As you picked your way through another
Day's struggle
And I set my life's work
Into the lyrics
Of our instrumental duet
