Escape from Melodies

The song filled my head
Pictures of love and the lost
A life beyond reproach, not pain
Where regrets are stolen by swooping claws

The song beat my heart
With lies so sweet and gentle
An easy road through the woods
While all around my white ravens watch

The song stole my thoughts
Led them on its own way
Changing the world to suit rhythm
My mood to fit its lyrics

To this day I follow the steps
Of the song I wish I’d never heard
Haunted by the faintest notes
That manage to escape from other melodies
