I Am Music -------------------------------------------
I am music.
Listen to me,
I am everywhere and nowhere
I am everything and nothing
Filling a room, yet it's still empty
Listen to me
My message swelling in dramatic crescendos
Even if you cannot understand
It is still there
Beneath the beating of the drums
Dynamic and alive
Beckoning your soul to dance
Emotions transcending into sound
And sound back to emotion
I whisper to you
Tickling your subconscious
Awakening thoughts long since sedated
I fill you up
Mingling with your soul
Righting your wrongs
Soothing the pangs
And changing the rhythm of your heart
Can you feel me?
I caress you like a lover
You cannot resist my kiss,
But why would you want to?
I am the elixer of life.
And you can glimpse everlasting life
It is there
Great way to explain music cause it does the same to me.. Without music and rythm i wouldnt b me. It does everything for me music was there the first time i feel in love and it will remain all around always in the room always filling it up whilst i think of the different things that happened throughout my life maybe you should have pointed out some of those thoughts it is a good write though almsot makes me see the music flowing through once a poem can paint a picture its perfect so this is a well written piece i love reading all your poems so keep the good work up
i can hear this being read confidently in an outdoor auditorium where the words echo back and forth between the speaker and the listener and more than the sound is felt on the tiny hairs of my skin. you call it an epiphany, but it's more of a miracle to read so freshly something that has settled into every true poet's soul; the intimate knowledge of that which can never be seen or touched, but just felt, and something you can't really describe, although you come extremely close. thank you for sharing this - it was better than the coffee i still haven't had to wake me up happy.
Ya I like it. My only (small) complaint is that you implicitly generalize all music - which necessitates discounting the effects and characterizations of other types (never heard purposefully emotionless music?). Just the same, its a small complaint and I really like this poem....fav shard
