Piano Girl

her lithe body sways
as she gently plays
sweet melodies
upon the ivory keys

oblivious to the pain
within her heart
softly she plays
until that certain part

where the echoes are loud
and fingers pound with rage
a misunderstood masterpiece
brings applause to the stage

the concert is over
yet she continues to play
exorcising the demons
of yesterday

the songs are familiar
known throughout the world
but no one can play them
like the piano girl............

Copyright Bob C Shank
Inspired by Angelina Taylor, a poet
who loves her piano.....Play on girl,
play on.

"If I told you my reality, you'd
say I have a great imagination,
If I told you my imagination, you'd
say I've lost touch with reality"-Bob Shank, 2004

bulgarian connection
funny you should mention Bulgaria, because that's where she is from, why she doesn't use her given name I have no clue, but her favorite poet and artist is Petia Dubarova, who died in 1979. The girl is quite talented as a young poet, hopefully her playing of the piano is just as good....peace
