A conductor: entrusted, A muse: beloved, Fate: melodically entwined

L. B. Mek


without lyrics to decipher 

or a music sheet to unravel


those ruins of a melodic love’s, dampened passion

armed with your empathy’s orchestra, of compassion  

and your deftly insightful, actions

with sensitivity’s tentative approach, of fractions


gradually – you, resurrected 

what was once neglected;


a lung’s stunted, rasping - sighs

healing, under your enticing - directions

fingers, influencing with a gentle - caress,

soothing - time-hardened bruising  


awakening – a fluttering, tepid beat

rhythmically – drumming each tentative, step

revitalising – a pulsating heart’s steady rise,

synchronising that symphonic Minuet - connection


until eventually, a resurgently euphoric Allegro

declares loud, with a Tenor's blossoming falsetto

this budding romance, as our story’s: Phoenix crescendo!

    stunning poetry L B;

    • L. B. Mek

      a little different, swimming in the experimental deep-end
      out of my depth, so it took a while
      but, defo was worth the wait..
      thank you! for your encouraging stamp of approval, my friend

    • Trenz Pruca

      Wow! music for my mind. Thank you.

      • L. B. Mek

        yeah, that's the vibes I was going with
        a lot of saxophone solos, like A. Ayler
        accompanied me while editing this over the years;
        this is the second time you've identified and highlighted
        the musical inspiration behind my scribbles, thank you!

        Very good write Mek may that crescendo always bring joy and wonder to all.


        • L. B. Mek

          as you're a music aficionado, I was hoping you'd like this one
          I was going to pair this write with
          Pavarotti's 'Nessun Dorma' clip, since those lyrics
          reflect the tone of the write, but
          I changed my mind.. lol

        • Thekkinkkattil

          Revitalizing and rhythmic even without lyrics a good write Mek

            • L. B. Mek

              thank you! I hope you had a little fun reading it,
              would be nice to return the favour
              for all the wonderful reads you share, dear poet

              Saving a love through music. A plausible event with the right romantic conductor. An interesting tale of resurgent love and musical appreciation. They say that "music is the shorthand of emotion" and that love is the greatest emotion. The power of one is expressed by the other.
              You have married the two, music and love , in a very unique way. And your poem ends on a crescendo. - Phil A.

                what a comprehensive, and eloquently succinct
                summarisation, of my humble scribble
                thank you very much, kind poet
