A Broken String

A string stretched

Beyond the breaking point

Lays limp between nut and bridge

 

Rosary nearly perfect

Blemished near the neck

Imperfectly presented

 

A through high E

Keeping in touch

Tension holding on

 

Head resisting breaking, cracking

While even taunt pressure

Runs through the body

 

The sound hole, a mouth

Resonating with raw emotion

As rhythm and harmony ring true.
