Pianoforte

Let me lay my burden upon you
Sturdy soul, 
Built for wear.
Carry this heartache- if for a moment;
Ease my pain,
I beg.

Let me touch you gently…
Or hard
Or soft or fast or slow
Or however I must touch you to find release.
Ask nothing of me.

You’ve been used by others for just this thing:
Don’t deny me!
I will slam my heartache out of you,
Pull it whimpering from your strings!
Every heartache.
Every wound.

Let me lay my burden down
Sturdy soul,
Without a care.
