Poem: Love in a minor key

Love in a minor key

A blue note wafts from the nightclub,
love in a minor key,
painful, sad, full of promise,

echoing in your heart,
releasing tears
for love lost,
for love's phoenix rebirth

and the reality of it,
each memory a wail,
lonely and hopeful,
like a saxophone at midnight.
