The Ties That Bind

~jummyjeenz D.T.

The bars are strong

Many years

To break

Trapped within

This subtle quake


Aftershocks one by one

How many more

To come undone


After all there is a key

locked inside

A memory


The flesh

the blood

the veins

It resides

The cello’s cry

Knows where

It hides


Spongy pathways

Blurring routes

Rays shine in

Hands block out

Revealing walls

 Six-thousand feet

Piled high

All concrete


White matter muffled

Music plays

Can you hear that note

Just a recollection

Lump in the throat


Break the bars

Crush the shocks

Find the key

Or pick the lock


Clear the path

Move your hands from the light

Unveiling days

Forgetting nights


Stairs six-thousand feet

Hidden within concrete

Climb them all

And then you’ll find

A symphony
