Leitmotiv

(Poetry Scales 13)
for CLD

People constitute our soundtracks
Relationships our wall of sound
Father, mother, siblings, friends, children,
The man selling candy out of a box at school
They come they go; they swell and fade
Dictating mood; cueing emotion
Our stories are full of music

But one melody rises above the others
She is my through line, my driving beat
She keeps me focused; drives heroic aspirations
Turns grey-toned mundane documentary into Panavision
More than just a soul-mate
Or a “better-half” cliché
In my story she is the leitmotiv
