My guitar


It sits waiting, in piercing black, sleek and stealthy like a jet


An unbreakable object of anger and strength,

Yet its wooden neck seems frail bound by strings of metal


Its strings worn from the cut and blistered fingers it exploits,

Never in tune yet the music it makes is still beautiful to him


The emotions of the man, played between frets on its smooth wooden surface,

A modest instrument, a priceless channel revealing emotions and character


Many a time it has spent sleepless nights playing feelings that can not be put into words,


It is always waiting, ready to play a mans life through strings and fingers  

Life through fingers and strings
