The Tune That Never Stops Playing


My soul sings
of my love
for you
a melody
so painful
I bury it
deep within me

I turn up
the radio
to drown out
the refrain
that rings
in my ears

I let the sounds
of the world
fill my heart
so it can forget
the words
of the song
on which
we soared
to the heavens

When the noise abates
the swelling silence
screams in my mind
but I can still
hear the tune
that never
stops playing
