A song died in me

Today a song died in me!!

It said it would flutter high into the azure sky,
and ring the air with its melodious voice.

But a hoarse voice clipped its wings,
and down it fell into the bottomless pit of a grieving heart,
never to be heard, never to be felt again.

Slowly and silently, it sank to its grave,
and spared the trouble of many to bury and weep over it.
