I'd much rather cry for you
'Cause my story is too painful to share
I'd much rather smile for you
'Cause my story is too painful to bare

So come here and I'll wrap my arms around you
Come here and I'll let your story shine
But after you share your story
Please don't ask me about mine

If only I could play the violin
I'd share my past through sorrowful chords
Vibrato on strings would be my voice
Fighting my demons with imaginary swords

Although I'm limited to words on paper
And the words aren't sung by a beautiful voice
These words make my story into a song
And this song confronts you with a choice

You can close your eyes
And pretend this is a fairytale
Pretend it's a meaningless story
That was never once true

Or you can open your eyes
And realise deep down
That the story isn't just about me
That you're the main character too

If you don't want to tell your story
As it is, spoken word to word
Turn your art into your voice
And you will always be heard

A picture speaks a thousand words
And music helps you through
If these words come to help me cope
Then they can help you too
Written at 2:44am last night whilst listening to Emilie Autumn's album 'Fight Like A Girl'.

This is absolutely beautiful. The words are melancholic and powerful and I really appreciate the rhyme scheme. The imagery created by the words themselves is so strong. Thank you for writing this.

Tuna cake duck butt. (you did ask for random)
On another note, this is a great poem! Its simplicity and rhyming pattern is nice. >_> I might start watching you.

The melancholy in this work makes it a good composition and in my opinion, that's what makes a wonderful work in the end.

There isn't much to say about this work other than: I can relate with each and every single stanza; the mention of the violin adding melancholy is suggestive of death and pain; while the last two stanzas add the final composition of what it means to complete the picture of how our story is important, only to those who matter. Because they are the ones who don't seem to be around that often... and we're left to deal with our lives as we thought we could...
