Oh, there are no words that express it,
Save one, but I won't accept it.
Love, It's not a strong enough word.
All I can do is strum my guitar and wait.

Merely hours away am I,
From seeing your face, beaming and expressing,
All that is good, all that is healthy and embodies,
All that is love, all that is lovely and I know it,
So I strum my guitar and wait.

Somewhere, my someone is thinking of me,
And knowing me,
And accepting me,
And knowing, that she's my someone.
And somewhere, my someone is hoping for me,
And anticipating me,
And thinking for me,
And I know, she's my someone,
So I'll strum my guitar and wait,

But what rats scurry in the walls of my mind,
Those rats that bring bitterness,
Those rats what bring out the bad,
Those rats that hate all that is good,
Oh, how they scurry in the walls of my mind,
But those rats that bring out the bad,
So hate the strumming,
And so I'll strum my guitar and wait.

On the September night,
That night that I dread,
I was alone, just my guitar,
And I died, they say, still strumming.
The rats fear death, and have left me,
But I never saw you before I left,
I just strummed my guitar and waited,

But I never felt you coming,
On moonlit nights however,
You visit the stump on which I sat,
And you listen to my ghostly playing,
And you dance so jubilantly, for you know,
I'm watching you right beside you,
So you dance with your life,
And I strum my guitar, and wait no more.
more romantic babble....well, I like it, but if you like my dark stuff more, then don't bother reading this or telling me that you don't like it cuz it's not dark. those of you who do like romanticism, read on.

wow, you have such a great imagination. You should become a song writer or something :)
This piece is the type of piece that makes me want to keep reading to find out what happens in the end.
Very well done!

Well, I have been thinking about forming a short story around it, but that might take away the imagination of it. I do hope to one day write songs, but I don't think it's very likely. Here's my statistics:

30% chance of: Poet with some good books
5% chance of: Songwriter
5% chance of: Poet with GREAT books
60% chance of: average joe.

I happen to play the guitar as well. Maybe not as good as you, but it's something. This poem surely leaves a deeper impression in me. is true that musicians seek comfort in their chords, whatever their instrument is. Especially when the pain is caused by love. And so do artists with their illustrations or writings.I happen to be more artistic when I'm depresed. Thanks for sharing such a poem with us. I truly enjoyed reading it.

thank you, it's true, I find solice in playing guitar, i find solice in writing my poetry, even in doing some schoolwork i find solice. But I just truly loved playing my guitar yesterday, so i wrote the song, then i decided it'd make a good dA submission. so, glad you all enjoyed it, it was my pleasure.

well i was gonna submit it as a song...(I wrote it as a song) but i decided to just submit it as a poem, because thats what it was originally. Plus putting in the chords/notes would be a little complicated.

yea, though you could prolly tab it out without too much trouble. I don't think dA has a section for song lyrics though
