Text Melody

The melodious tune of a text
that came from her phone
was unlike any other
I made it my own.

It took me back
to joyous days
filled with happiness, laughter
and intense pain.

I remember things
that made me love so much
but none of the things
that caused pain.

Such is the nature of love
that binds people together
Culture, age, race: terms
love refuses to understand.

The things it recognizes
truth, beauty, life, symmetry
Our very best comes out
when we love.

What separates us from machines
faster, smarter, stronger, masters
but one thing they can never match
is to love so much.

I cannot escape from it
intense feelings it has sown
The melodious tune of a text
that came from her phone.
