The Jazz Melody

by E. Lydia Day

Sometimes I am
Away from the world
And all I see
Are the notes
That so majestically
And with great ease
Soothe as they swirl all around me

Leaving me
In a Type of bliss
That allows
Crowds to pass me by
Mobs to slay
And riots to break out
Right before my face

No, not today
Those situations will not
Remove me from my
Pleasant place
You see in this state
A spy couldn't break in
Even posing as my friend
A thief would even
Have to find a new crease
To shake through
To snatch me from this peace
