Music To Me

 

Intensity crackles between notes

Emotions pulse within a bass line

Passion vibrates with the strings;

The simple beauty of a chord!

Construction of melancholy in a minor scale.

My delicate, brutal joy

My shimmering, harmonised love

 

The sparkle in my eyes

Ignited by a well timed scream,

A messy, tumbling solo

Or unyielding metallic precision.

lips move in time,

fingers drumming, synchronised, echoing

An ache of sweet creating

A thousand and eighteen seconds of suspended bliss.

My fierce, percussive joy,

My sweeping, electric love,

soul amplified.
