A Poem: My Confidant

My Confidant

Music

I know her

music’s sweet melody

lifts me up

calms me down

makes me excited

offers beautiful words

I love music as a sister

we would stay up late

whispering secrets

like the young girls we were

I know she will always be by me

because of the promises that we made

I’ll write this poem

but only because

this is

To Music


This poem is published in two poetry collections, Accolades and A Celebration of Poets. I wrote this when I was twelve. I still have a love-hate relationship with this poem but I still am super duper proud that the words are shaped like a woman wearing a hat and skirt.
