Just Because

Just Because

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

What I do hold inside, may music release it...

"


There is release
when I hear music
or play the guitar
if I dare to sing
it soothes the sting
betrays anxious apathy
gives life to reflection
that swims in my tears
makes me feel loved
empowered to smile
when I hurt so deeply inside
there is freedom for me
when I listen to music
a whimper that builds to a scream
as I let the melody take me
a scream that builds to a roar
when the tune beats faster and I need more
then...a silence
muted panic
a sharp, shuddered breath
as I let go
dare to dream
most of all
there is a pause
from your voice
that unsettles my mind
and breaks my heart
more and more over time
music is the healer
to my fractured thoughts
it is the sunlight
to your vehemence
that leaves me distraught

I like the journey and your thoughts in the poem. Music can bring peace. Life can create chaos. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

this is how music works for me, and probably for everyone who knows how to make music....

You put forward a very strong argument. Music has a connecting action that takes the listener away.

Music feeds the soul and can create an array of emotions. It's a great outlet.
