She cries when she sings

her mediocre voice

in her mind rises and soars

Feeling the lyrics

she relates each word to her own life

conveying the emotion

intended

She cries when she sings

Her heart swells

pressing against expanded lungs

tight chest

shoulders spread

every sense redirected to the one assignment

of savouring the song

She cries when she sings

concentrated breathing

notes lifted on the exhale

diaphragm contracting

an abstract orchestra supporting her

She cries when she sings

Though she has no audience

it is a personal performance perfected

fingers instinctively wipe

from her face

unnoticed tears

She cries when she sings
