I ran away to the city to drown out your voice; the endless echoes pierced my chest - stilettos of eternal sorrow. I walked, a madwoman in a frenzy, through midtown, long furious strides in the middle of millions; yet above the cacophony you sang, rippling, a fluid wave washing through the urban jungle.
Finally, exhausted, blocks above the seething, I rested, breathless, before a Beaux-Arts beauty of a building. Its richness of color and craftsmanship caught me as I stood, still vibrating in your thrall, staring up, disoriented and not knowing why. My eyes followed the mansard roofline and I realized for all her ancient grandeur, this grande dame was listing - quietly, subtly, but definitely - to the left. Not so much that it was dangerous - it would never crash to the ground in a beautiful mess of plaster and stone - but just enough to set an observer off-kilter.
Closing my eyes to keep the dizziness at bay I saw you, always leaning left; unlike this sturdy monument to the grace of a time long dead your symmetry was too fragile to withstand the thundering madness of the world. You crashed, a beautiful mess of brilliance and heart, but still you sing your song of piercing sweetness that nothing in this world will ever silence. ~copyright 2016 RC deWinter
