Could fill a heart
Change the rhythm
Of its beating.
Has the power
To bring tears
To empty eyes.
Raises goose bumps
On warm skin.
And through the body
We inhabit, to the soul.
An invisible wave washing
Over, and sweeping up those
Fortunate enough to stand in the way.
Smoky tendrils of water, twining in and up
Taking hold of anything exposed, dragging, pulling
Taking it down, to a place where nothing else exists or matters.
Lost in the music, caught up in the song, the melody and words make
Captives of your senses, leaving nothing untouched, until it
Begins its slow release, rolling itself back out to sea
Leaving everything washed up, soaked, all alone
Shaken to the core, but still living
Breathing, very much alive
Better yet for the
Music is such an integral part of my life. Music can affect my emotions and my emotions affect what music I want to listen to. Music runs in my veins all the time. It’s why I love to dance, it’s what brings me immense joy. So of course music would inspire my writing.
What is you relationship with music?
