A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

was my heart
trodden over sand

Until the riff hit me
sparkled my nerves
intricate and visual

Such innocence
decay of tyrannical time
ocean's quench in a desert far from home

It is best to be lost
in a wave of music
one does not fear madness in such a time

More a flicker of fire
inside a state of numbness
roar within emotion's tide

Upon glittered sand
my heart was mocked
trodden into oblivion and beyond

Until the riff hit 
point blank caressed me
coiled around my need and want

Madness is best enjoyed
when consumed by music
however far infinity may reach

Madness can be thinned out when reaching for infinity but holding the note may take forever.

I agree.
"Madness is best enjoyed
when consumed by music
however far infinity may reach"
