my guitar quietly weeps for you


my guitar quietly weeps for you


Forever drying off
the guitar bridge
that never leads
me back to you
I find myself
playing wet strings
that serve as cruel reminders
of the faded connections
between me and you

Now that you are gone
my heart always beats off key
while the tears never stop
on this damp instrument
And since you no longer care
I write the saddest lyrics
for I’ll always love you in my songs
as my guitar quietly weeps for you

  1. I have a soft spot for musical analogies and references as you can imagine. Beautifully penned, Andrew. The emotions cry out in chords both harmonious and discordant. Heartbreak is c**t and yet we need it to know who we are and in the aftermath of the wreckage of one’s heart, we see parts of ourselves obscured before. If heartbreak allows such poetry to pour forth, then it was not in vain. ❤️

    1. No, I guess it was not in vain. In response to your other comment; don’t feel awkwardness in following me and her or reaching out to either of us.

      Please do your best to find peace.

  2. Such a beautifully and yet sentimental poem written by you. The guitar strings and bridge were rusted and faded away because of the tears from sadness. Your writing very much made me feel the depressing circumstance of the guitarist. I’m personally a guitarist, so I may be able to relate to it more. Thank you for writing this. It was a lovely read. ❤


    1. You being a guitarist makles this comment all the more beautiful. Happy that you enjoyed my little poem.
      Grateful for your amazing comment.

      Apologies for my late response. My holiday blogging break put me behind on replying to comments. I am finally
      catching up on blog reading and replying to comments.

      Very grateful for your lovely read and words. Thanks
