Night Music

by Craig Shay

As night falls,the prisoner hears a song,
sung by a woman outside the tower walls –
Her fingers pluck strings,
tuned to the key of moonlight.

Tonight she appears
in the form of a street performer.

Her music beckons his mind
to venture beyond cage doors.
The drone of her guitar
puts the whole palace to sleep.

With her music,she climbs into his soul
and releases him from the guarded citadel.

She kisses his eyelids,
and gives him the courage
to dive into the abyss of consciousness,
and reach the hidden kingdom.
