A lyrical poem written after a song from a novel I'm currently working on. This poem expresses the feelings the character faces after loosing her hearing, and the inevitable impact it has on her life. But thankfully, she's not alone in her dark journey.

Sadness's Gong

Fingers on the keys, the feeling I’ve been longing for,

Fingers on the keys, the feeling I’ve been longing for, Such vibrations going through my whole body,

Fingers on the keys, the feeling I’ve been longing for, Such vibrations going through my whole body, My soul, it keeps asking for more,

Fingers on the keys, the feeling I’ve been longing for, Such vibrations going through my whole body, My soul, it keeps asking for more, But I know that such a blast isn’t meant to last.

I savor the bliss that has been giving me,

I savor the bliss that has been giving me, As I know what’s to come,

I savor the bliss that has been giving me, As I know what’s to come, At the end of the song I feel sadness’s gong,

I savor the bliss that has been giving me, As I know what’s to come, At the end of the song I feel sadness’s gong, And realize once more, I can’t hear anymore.

One thought, my whole confidence gone,

One thought, my whole confidence gone, But outside I seem to be so fine,

One thought, my whole confidence gone, But outside I seem to be so fine, There’s a void starting to arise,

One thought, my whole confidence gone, But outside I seem to be so fine, There’s a void starting to arise, Everywhere it goes I feel my heart crumble and fall.

I’ve got to take in the pain and carry on,

I’ve got to take in the pain and carry on, Before I think my life is done, and I start to hurt myself,

I’ve got to take in the pain and carry on, Before I think my life is done, and I start to hurt myself, But I think of what I have left to lose and tell myself,

I’ve got to take in the pain and carry on, Before I think my life is done, and I start to hurt myself, But I think of what I have left to lose and tell myself, Oh darling, I’m sorry for making you worry.

I look at this reflection starring in front of me,

I look at this reflection starring in front of me, Thinking that I’m never going to be free,

I look at this reflection starring in front of me, Thinking that I’m never going to be free, But I can choose to lock up my door,

I look at this reflection starring in front of me, Thinking that I’m never going to be free, But I can choose to lock up my door, And keep my demons from hurting me.

I walk up to my girlfriend and give her a kiss,

I walk up to my girlfriend and give her a kiss, In her arms I tell myself “She’s such a bliss”,

I walk up to my girlfriend and give her a kiss, In her arms I tell myself “She’s such a bliss”, She looks me in the eyes and tell me “It’s alright”,

I walk up to my girlfriend and give her a kiss, In her arms I tell myself “She’s such a bliss”, She looks me in the eyes and tell me “It’s alright”, I look at her smile, and start to feel glad.
