PAIN

Listen to the heartbreak of

Wood, metal and hair

Sodden air to carry the sound

Backdrop for life’s video

Sobbing pain into the sky of rain

From Gypsy, Cajun, European cultures

Showing inner grieving

From one unable to separate his own heart

From the music, from the words

So much pain from the verse and refrain

Tracing a trail through the listener’s anguish

Sending a subliminal message:

Suffer through the song with me

The lyrical language may be unknown

But the common chords of pain–

The melody–

Create personal words

As audience and violinist

Merge

Onto an endless plain of pain

Yet, in the uniqueness of universal balance

So much promise of life

Detaches

In the catharsis of music

Subduing sorrowing souls
