just so you know

And when it was over
you asked if it had pleased me.
The truth is
I’d wanted a melody
that would resonate for ages to come.
I’d gotten a classic hit
over-rehearsed
and played on a plastic accordion,
each note ringing as false
as the regret in your smile
for falling short of expectations,
as you bowed and left the stage.
Yet, while the song had played,
I’d danced as though
it had only ever played for me.
And I would never hear music again.
I’m still not sure
whether I did it
for you
or for me.
