Released

The graceful ripples of the piano keys

play a melancholy sound and

poignant memories rest upon

the whispers of a troubled mind

Untamed and gregarious

A body unhealed for so long

drags fourth the heaviness

of a painful life

and unsettled grievances

The path of most resistance

A jolly public facade mask’s

raw and scarred despair

the pleading prayer

becomes a daily ritual

Unburden thee of pain

The prayer is answered mercifully

and the body is soothed

swathed in glorious surrender

returned to love

Pure and unblemished
