Sweet Sounds Of The Music

Sweet Sounds Of The Music

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Mary Ann requested for me to write something about "one of my best happiness", so all I could think of is the moment when the happiness actually found me instead.

"

 

For So Many Years That I Lived Without The Yearnings

Only Have Been Rustling Around With All Kinds Of The Lusting;



The Typical Sex, Violence, And Rock N Roll

Not To Forget Greed, Wrath, And All Of Those



Until One Night I've Experienced Something Horrible

The Pain Caused Me To Fall Hard And Struck Me So Terribly

It Was Indescribable And It Was Almost Unexplainable



For A While There, I Didn't Know What Else To Do

And I Needed To Lay Down To Calm Myself Down

So, I Turned On The Radio To Find The Boring Songs

That Way, I Can Fall Asleep Faster And Sleep Long

And Hoped That My Mind Would Drift Out Of The Town

Finally, Found Something That I Used To Dislike; The Blues



I Laid Down And Stared At The Ceiling And Breathed Slowly

Listening To The Softness Sounds That Started Glowing

After A While, I Waited For Someone To Start To Sing

But, No One's Singing, Just The Sounds Of The Strings

The Tunes Didn't Give Out The Sounds Of The Sharpness

Just Soft Soothing Sounds That Left My Heart Breathless



It Wasn't Neither Jazz Nor Blue That Was Playing

It Was Almost Like The Opera Without Any Singings

Strangely, I Found That Quite A Bit Fantasizing

At The Same Time, I Felt It As It Was Mesmerizing



My Ears Opened Up Wide For The Very First Time

For The Perfect Sound That Never Sounded So Fine

The Only Instruments Were The Piano, Violin, And Harp

They Were Giving Out The Tunes Without Being Sharp



There's No Phony To It; Just Mainly Symphony



Afterward, For The Very First Time In My Life

I Have Finally Found The True Inner Peace

And I Felt Like A Kid With Heart Filled With Light

Almost Like Having An Ice Cream For A Treat



Now, It's Safe To Say That It Was Definitely The Violins

The Piano And The Harps That Gave Me The Salvation

They Are My Most Valuables At The Most Unique

Without Them, I'd Be Stuck Within The Damnation

So, Whenever I'm Feeling Like Facing The Devil's Dues

All I Have To Close My Eyes And Listen To The Tunes



It Was The Sweet Sounds Of The Music That Saved Me

Without Them, I Can't Even Imagine What Or Who I'd Be

Well now... this is a beautiful and touching piece. Music has a way of penetrating hearts and souls no matter who you are or where you are from. Music knows no color or creed... it is is own beauty indeed.
Thank you for sharing your happy moment with me and the rest of your friends here at the cafe. I am so very glad that you were able to find something that gave you a moment of peace and hapiness in the past and something that will allow you to find continual happiness in the present and the future.

Nicely done! :)

It's so easy to take sounds and even music for granted. So often music is used to filter background noise and you don't even hear it. I'm glad you found music that brought you the joy to write this piece Joe. It made me feel happy just to read it. It's good to read something like this from you and I hope you continue to have this joyous music with you for the rest of your life.

you had me caught up in this
i was reading to found what was it
that was so painful that cant be described

so caught up i wasnt even hearing the words
what is so painful that i thought this was me too
music is the great solver even songs you dont listen

am not a country girl in fact i hate country
but when i lost a bestest friend in the world
i was lost myself lost in depression "what to do"

even my best friend was not country
but a family member requested shania
shania tunes played in the going away party

these tunes lifted my depression i felt
for that moment i was a country girl
just to feel release from depression

Well, that's neat. ^^ Thanks for sharing this, Joe! It really let's us get to know you better! I'm not too into the blues, but I have had an experience like this when I started listening to hardcore punk--err... "screamo." ;)

Awesome work, dude! Music is the perfect getaway.

Ironically Yours.
