One of my biggest dreams right now, is for Josh Groban, to one day read this poem.
Having Asperger’s Syndrome, everything is intense. My writing is definitely intense as well but it is almost always inspired by a song. This particular poem was inspired by Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor but a lot of my poetry has actually been inspired by Josh’s music and it would just simply mean so much for him to read it.
If you would share this blog post on Twitter, maybe one of these days, he will actually see my poem. [Edit: See picture below, Josh saw my poem!]
Thank-you all so much!
Ivory at Midnight – A Poem
Tempted by the soft glow
of smooth ivory keys
I slowly approach the
Piano that lies in wait for me.
As I begin, I breathe in
Slowly allowing my fingers to linger
Then firmly hold them down
Provoking their intensity
And unveiling their glorious sound
Evoking a symphony of raw emotion,
As an untold story unfolds,
Of victory, tragedy, and pure devotion-
Each note now swirling-
As my trembling hands
Unravel the melody of my being.
