Songs about static

 

The ink is bleeding through these pages

Pen slicing through undisturbed canvas

Carving out the impending goodbyes

Of silence

 

Radio static filled the air

It whispered a buried melody 

Through the grungy hum of

"It's just not where you're suppose to be"

 

Still,

She listens

Silent,

Still.

 

Disregarding the sounds of snow

Drowning out the meaning

Searching for feeling

In words without tune

Aching

 

The buzz of the needle 

On the stereo not fitting 

Into the airspace where that song fits

Perfect 

Where it truly is found

Bursting through the speakers with 

"RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME"

not for you

It's time to face the music

It was never your tune

 

You don't know all the lyrics

You hadn't the time to learn all of the intricacies

Of the way two bodies build

To a booming crescendo

Perfectly in time 

Marathoning skin

Feeding the genius

Of the instruments at hand

 

 You're stuck on just the hook

Skipping

Skipping

Skipping

Flawed

Hanging onto those few words

That one verse

You two learned

Refusing to let go

Repeat

Repeat

Repeat

Grieving the lyrics you'll never learn

A funeral for a song

You'll never know

Not changing the station 

Where would she go

Instead,

She mournfully loved the snow
