sighing symphonies

she had music in her mind
that just never knew
quite how to get out.

she'd go to empty places
dance wildly in fields
scream into open air

hair rocking round
body thrashing
heart searching.

her fingers would skate
across bed sheets
back arching
breath gasping,
she should have learned
how to play an instrument. 

there was a kiss.
a kiss
of kisses.

out came a sigh,
and there was her symphony.
