Can you hear it?
It’s coming out through the piano,
all of it,
in ballad form,
because I am struggling to find the strength,
to hit the keys,
with the same ferocity,
as months ago.
The songs are sadder and slower,
the world is sadder and slower,
I am sadder and slower.
And although it feels like the universe has become a broken metronome,
I can’t let the music stop.
