the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 66
merely piak piaks

she stepped onto the stage
in a flowing dress of red
gaping at the audience
drooping their tired heads

her nails were long and white
ready to enchant
she sat upon the stool
thinking that she can't

i don't know what she feels
but let me tell you what i feel
that as she sat on that stage
everything felt unreal

she started plucking at the strings
her long nails sliding across
a high pitched sound rang in my ears
i saw her fingers growing moss

how long has she been playing
the music went on and on
i stared at the clock
wishing she was gone

then suddenly the hall light dimmed
and i saw upon her face
something no one noticed
the look of pure disgrace

i glanced around the audience
everyone asleep
no wonder she was crying
no wonder she could weep

for no one was listening to her music
no one understood her heart
the sounds that came from within
was the biggest part

the lights were bright again
i cannot describe the music
but for her up there on stage
it must have been so tragic

but the audience stood up
and clapped so hurriedly
was it for her beautiful performance
or something only i could see
