Duet
Duet

What I want is to have your fingers
Play my tune
We’ll play a duet
You on black keys, me on
White
What I want is to hear
Two melodies chasing fire
Intertwined and I want
Balance between give and
Take
What I want is to inhale
Your music and exhale
A dance
Turn your blacks to whites and
Sing in all your dawns
I want to hold this note
Until it fills my world
And float.
