" the melody lingers "

---

awash underneath the dappled waves as the frequency tremors with such clarity. i'm slipping into the depth of the lower register.

from inside the walls of my chest, past the musculature, past the fourth and fifth ribs,  the decibels reaching down, down and into my bones.

this song, this old beautiful mournful song bellows throughout, and is remembered and noted. our lives have changed. we are no longer those children, and what lovely times we have had so far apart.

and to find each other after such time passing. it is good to see that though the tune has altered, the melody lingers.

tonight's homework:

learn a new lullaby, then sing it aloud.
