All of my truly favorite poems were inspired by my husband's music. This is for him.

A Few Visitor Comments

its a beautiful poem which shows one more important aspect of love & that is loving some one for his voice & the way he says or plays things. that love is not merely love at sight but also, love for the person he is. & well depicts ma emotions too. :)

When He Plays

He puts down his cigarette, picks up his guitar
Grins at the drunken crowd collecting bottles at the bar
He doesn't really expect to make it rich this way
He just needs to feel that high he gets when someone hears him play
Does he know he makes me feel things
I've never felt before
Does he know that when I hear him play
I only want him more
What I wouldn't give, what I wouldn't say or do
To be the woman who inspires the next song deep inside of you
