soul mates

Another torn page, five failed melodies
It’s hard trying to write the perfect song with these broken piano keys
The words are right but the music is all wrong
I have the perfect lyrics but not the perfect song
I want to pour my heart out and let you know how I feel
But each sour note I press wraps around my bones like a cold piece of steel
Sixth attempt, six eternities melting into a pool of depression
My hopes are being buried by the rotting soils of suppression
I try again to let the notes match the music in my heart
And pray that when they come together it’s the perfect piece of art
When you hear this song, hope you see past the flaws and see me
And forgive the fact that it was written with these broken piano keys.
