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,
