A Poem by Green



you are the song I used

to listen to

that went

buh dum 


I will carry it

with me

slowly forgetting it

some small part

of my brain

remembering the lyrics

until I stumble 

again upon it

with my music on shuffle

very nice poem, started a thought process for me. Im one of those people that gets jingles and any number of other annoying medleys stuck in my head for days. On rare occasion it will be a song i love, those are the days I search for.

Nice piece. It’s funny how a tune, a song will pinpoint a specific moment in your life on recall. Enjoyed it!

We all have different versions of 'the song', and sometime multiple, each one for a different significant person or memory from our past.
Bittersweet, I think, when we are reminded of it.
I enjoyed this poem.

That song resonates with every heart that has ever loved. It becomes a part of us forever.

I know the song you are writing about, maybe not the exact song but "the" song for sure. It had a different beat but it is still the same song. Different words/lyrics but the same song. The one that when it comes on when the music is on shuffle, your heart breaks all over again...that song right there. Really nicely conveyed theme in this wonderful poem.

I'm living in the good ol' south of the US of A. Professionally, I'm an engineer and I guess that means I'm supposed to know things. I don't always. I write because I can, and because I can write word.. more..
