M is for Mood Ballad

Mind your step as you make your way into my
Orchestral lair. The place where my sounds
Overflow like water in a claw footed tub, slipping under
Doors and into the floor, running down the walls like a siren’s song.

Be gone! Banish your melancholia
And stand up from the pit you have dug
Lying to yourself that you’ll never get out. True, you have a
Long way to climb but follow the sound of my hymns
And let the notes be your handholds and
Don’t look down

  2. Loved the anti self-pity stance of this poem. These lines 🙂 –

    Be gone! Banish your melancholia
    And stand up from the pit you have dug
    Lying to yourself that you’ll never get out.

    Fantastic 🙂
