Disappearing melody

Music fills the silence of night
Sounds vibrating off the walls
Ricocheting from place to place
Sounds meeting closed ears
Unwilling to listen to the melody
Describing emotions of suffering
Desperately wanting to be heard
Traveling great distance
Hoping in reaching an open ear
Stopping from ricocheting any longer
Exhausted from the journey
Tired from not being heard
Waiting always for night 
When the world is asleep and safe
Increasing the chances of being heard
In the dead of night
When everything is still, unmoving
Sweet melody of songs
Singing away into the night
Tales of grief and pain
Falling on deaf ears
Throughout the silence of night
Disappearing without an audience
