She plays the piano
Just like an angel
Taking strides of her own

With folded wings
Clasped about her skin
As fingers intertwine
And hands do not rest,
But instead move

Across the keys
Unlocking the doors
Of a child's heart
As she sways
Into the Movements
Of a woman

The intensity of
Eyes permeates the air
Even as they are

To the stepping stones
Where raindrops wept
A million tears
Creating Oceans
That spanned across
The sands
And forever flow

No matter how torrent
Or impalpable
She eases into that
Steady Motion

As her vessel
Gently rocks
The sunsets

Until the door is closed
And the song has
Ended, and an easy
Voice, is able to

Exactly what was seen
What was meant
In the Depths
Of her Ocean.
and that is all that matters.

I absolutely love this, the flow and the image that your words create is true beauty. The way you describe the feeling as she plays and how the music affects everything is brilliantly written out in such a romantic poem and if I were in that world while she played I would never leave, I would let the music carry me as she seemed to do as well.

I never noticed any grammar issues or anything so it's very carefully written out and revised, I would give more then 5 stars on impact if I could cause judging by the comments it impacted people the same it did me.
What do you think?

:love: It's just... the way you wrote it feels like fingers playing smoothly across a keyboard, like that's how it should be read, with a melody playing behind it.

Wow. Your poetry is one of the few that can actually create distinct pictures in my head (I'm many things, but a good visualizer is not one of them.) This is beautiful!

I felt like I just travelled into a beautiful and romantic world and it is a world I don't want to ever leave! I love the sea and nautical theme intertwining with the body and emotions. It was an excellent touch! You did a very good job!
