A Change Of Key
We were in perfect harmony
matching our moves
perfectly in tune
singing like angels
straight out of Paradise.
But all it took was a change of key
for us to fall out of step.
Just a few notes at first
soft as snowflakes
and no damage done.
The angels caught them before they fell.
Then one crashed.
We floundered.
A discord is always a shock
more so when it follows a melody.
Soon they came pouring down
cascades of discords
sharp as hailstones.
And now we are falling
deserted by the angels
out of step
off key
by discord
our past melodies gone.
