Minor Key

By talltales225

Sinking beneath
all your standards.
You break me down
looking for answers.

Everyone else
is moving on.
So did you.
You're already gone.

But I'm stuck here.
Walking in place.
I watch you go
unable to chase.

Who am I?
What's wrong with me?
Why am I stuck singing
in a minor key?

Someone help.
Set me free.
Write me a song
in major C.

Help me be normal.
Don't leave me alone.
My notes are weak.
I can't make it on my own.

My sharps and flats
sound so wrong.
Help me write
a brand new song.

Who am I?
What's wrong with me?
Why am I stuck singing
in a minor key?

I beg you please
make me change.
Make me stagnant
instead of strange.

You just smile
and hum along with me.
Matching my sharps.
Matching my key.

You sing with me
and my song.
With your voice
it's not wrong.

I know who I am.
Nothing's wrong with me.
I'm just getting used
to my identity.
