Music is always music

playing songs in my mind

a simple, bloody mixtape

the soundtrack of my life

And I listen to it without choice

I listen to it in my head

as others pass me by they cannot hear

the songs that are always singing

themselves out of my brain

  3. Let your heart sing,
    if joy it brings,
    and a good refrain,
    should be singing in your brain.

    The poem reads like a documentary of a recurring feelins I have with regards to music. Sometimes I imagine there is a boombox in the clouds but everyone is pretending not to hear what I’m hearing.

    Lovely piece. Ill surely be back to read it again.

    Yours sincerely,
    Philharmonic poet.

    Health and happiness to you and yours.

  13. As a musician, I can so relate to this. Sometimes while walking down a street, or riding a horse, or in the middle of a fight, I think about what my soundtrack would sound like, what songs and words would come through the transition.
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Life will be boring without music.. there is music in everything.

    • Jingle, I’m sorry!
      I haven’t been able to do any visits this week because it’s finals week and all of my time has been devoted to studying!
      I tried to pull my submission and make it not a submission anymore but I didn’t know how!
      I’m super sorry! I haven’t been able to visit any other poets this week!
      I’m sorry!
