He has a pretty tune in his heart
With the lyrics plastered
On strips of delicate, ashen paper
That crumble at the slightest touch.

They hang against the
Edges of his lips,
Trying to pour out,
But ever uncertain
Of whether the wind will carry their weight.
He has a pretty tune in his heart


Some day,

Will help him find his way

Back home.

The second stanza makes me think of revealing your true feelings to someone. And that part in the description reminds me of the trip I am planning.

I have a question for you now, did you have a specific person in mind when you wrote this?

I'm glad you enjoyed it, but even more so that you could see a bit of yourself in my work. ^^ That makes me so happy, I couldn't even tell you~

As a matter of fact, I did. I wrote the first few lines without really meaning anything by them, but then realized that they reminded me of someone I hold very dear to me, so I altered what I had previously written, and then added the second stanza.

I like it; it's like it could be a songwriter who's just afraid if people will like his song, or someone who has his own views and his own way of seeing things but who doesn't know if his views are supported by other people, or just the world in general.
just my own strange ideas about it. yeah.

Thank you, dear! I'm so glad you liked it. ^^

And thank you, again, for sharing your thoughts with me. X3

Truthfully, I wrote it about one, specific person I know, but I rather like your perspective, hahah. I suppose it could pertain exactly to those things.
