Old Guitar...............Freeverse

Pick up your old guitar,
find the soothing chords,
plucked notes or rhythmic hum,
voice your lyrics by firelight.
Bard, sing the songs of love,
where none can dance tonight
but don't dare give your heart away,
take your place in destiny.

Prompt: A song that is the self


Singing under moonless sky, singing just for me
Falling tears into the night, for my destiny
No one's there to listen to my music in the dark
This is when I have to face the fate of a lonely bard
~ Wolf Cry
