Nothing goes better with a break up than a guitar. Just my opinion.

I caress the steel strings
of a worn wooden body
and lament through my fingers.

I close my eyes
and feel the frets
under my gnarled fingers.

I clip one string
and let a stray drop of blood
race down it.

In my world,
this is what I do
to block out my anguish 
and pain
and guilt.

I haven't stopped
in a while.
I've got plenty
to be pained,
anguished,
and guilty about.

    This piece is so beautiful. I can relate, as I am a musician as well. Music helps the healing process; very good for letting out emotions. Well done; I really quite liked it:)
