"Concerto" by Sierra July, Frequent Contributor


Concerto
Sierra July

Under a blanket of stars,
She plays her violin.
A melody that haunts me,

Darkens my eyes, till I see
No more light
Save for the notes as they rain
Down on me.



Poet’s Notes: Inspiration for this stemmed from a show called “Your Lie in April,” about a music student deaf to his piano’s notes due to trauma and a girl who saves him. Rather than deaf, I imagined the character blind to all but a melody, the way the viewer feels when enveloped in the background music.
