Sing Me – A Poem

While you are wrong and I am right

You play in a diminished key

To my major melody

In a painful cacophony

Our notes a loud

War cloud


While you are right and I am wrong

My minor line coaxes tears

While your dominant scale sneers

In an assault on the ears

Duelling staccato



When we let each other just be

I lift on the coda of yours

You rise as my semi-tone soars

Our lone notes will float into chords

The real beauty

Our Harmony


The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. Well said. Relationships as music. I am going to have to reblog this. Just lovely.

  2. Reblogged this on Susan Daniels Poetry and commented:
    Just lovely.

  3. Lovely and the form fits well–

  4. I feel somewhat like a fish out of water when I read what you write.

  5. Reblogged this on Ramblings From A Mum and commented:
    Please visit this amazingly talented writer.

  6. I say it like it is…You iz what you iz …nuttin more..nuttin less πŸ™‚
    How’s that for a grasp on the English language!
    you’re most welcome and thank you also πŸ™‚

  7. I like the name Rambly btw – I have had many a nick- name since I commenced.
    Still want your ideas for something to write btw πŸ˜‰

  8. damn it want to correct my typos again? lol

  9. Typo’s ….you’re special πŸ™‚ oh and morning πŸ™‚
    Hmm ok done πŸ™‚ If you come up with anymore please feel free – as I can write 20 in a day – probably insignificant BS dribble but I like the idea of having ideas from others. πŸ™‚

  10. Pssst go back to ” I need help” I have a ?

  11. I need singing lessons. Or poetry lessons

    • ruleofstupid says:

      Learn by doing πŸ™‚
      (But usually best to do it in private πŸ˜‰ )

      • Writing’s easy to do in relative privacy. I think some of my haikus aren’t half bad.
        Singing? Hard to do that without making a noise
        Actually I’m not that bad. My ex used to do pro/am with the ENO. and she told me I have a pleasing bass voice. she was kind enough not to point out that at times of stress I have to go baritone when I can’t hit the low notes. Note to self. Give up smoking πŸ˜‰

    Oh, that’s nifty. Thanks.

  13. kerenmulia says:

    oh wow this is brilliant. I love it!!! you use simple words to convey such beautiful and complex ideas.

  14. Pat Cegan says:

    Bravo! Encore! love this. Sorry I have not gotten back to you about Christmas. I moved this week and am busy unpacking boxes full of stuff I do not even remember having. Absurd how much I have accumulated even though I constantly give away STUFF I am not using. Will be in touch when I find my other black shoe and some unmentionables. happy hugs, pat

    • ruleofstupid says:

      Pat I think you’ve had quite enough to deal with. To set your mind at ease, stuff breeds! You put a case in the attic and next month you find a case and a shoe-box. A month later two cases and a bin-liner. It’s some weird auto-genesis!
      Good luck with your unmentionables and we’ll speak soon πŸ™‚

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
