Music

~

Words of wonder,

Fear, excitement and bliss.

~

Flying, falling,

Screaming, roaring.

~

Sharp as a pinprick,

Mice on your fingertips,

~

A language that you won't find in any book,

Nor in any speech,

~

But in orderly lines causing chaos,

The words that have no meaning.

~

A note for every emotion,

A pitch for every moment,

A tone for every breath.

~

Beautiful whispers wrapped in many layers.

Each written piece is a new soul awoken.

~

Every note a new heart,

Everything in between perfect.

~

A song for everyone,

A word for everything,

A language that lives.

~

Underlying the world

Swimming the oceans,

Flying the skies.

~

The beat of a ruthless master,

the beat of a bottomless beating.

~

Can you feel it?

~

The beating.

The running.

The heart.

~

Regulated and ordered,

By the guards and the doves,

Peace and fear side by side.

Intertwined.

~

Sneaky and sly is also around,

Using both loud and quiet.

~

Is he there?

Is he where?

Does he dare?

Is he there?

~

A world of sound, a world of faces,

A world of light, never a silent sound.

~

But make no mistake silence is there.

~

In every song, in every heart,

There is silence.

~

For without silence there is no control,

No barrier

No pause

no gaps

nospaces

~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~

The one thing that we need most is nothing at all.

~

Behind all the sound, all the noise, all perfectly timed beats.

Behind all the secrets, the whispers and the sneaks.

~

He lies still, not moving, or chittering.

Waiting comfortably for us all to call.

~

Friends come slowly, separate and together,

Family comes all at once moment after moment.

Enemies are frequent, without knowing it they are the closest of all.

~

Tempt not a desperate man,

Call not upon an army of robbers,

Turn away from those who suffer you.

~

Seek me in the darkness.

The one who sits alone.

Step into the vashta nerada,

Leave all you know behind.

~

I am here, there, everywhere.

I am where you have always been,

Always in what you seek but never what you find.

~

Learn to love the silence,

And you can learn to love the music.

~An Introvert.
