Ode To Music

Music is the rhythm of the soul
As necessary as the beat of the heart
Your personality put on paper
In G-Clefs and Eighth Notes
The only thing that speaks my emotions
My story
Without my mouth opening once
It puts my heart on my sleeve
For everyone to see
While bringing back the demons and angels
Of the past
Bringing out those emotions you've bottled up
Tucked away for so many years

Strings of a guitar
Keys of a piano
Their melodies melting together
To create
My own little corner of heaven
My voice carrying the lyrics
Isn't the only thing that's soaring...
So is my heart

With headphones blaring
My worries wash away
As if an ocean's roaring
Inside of me
Wide and vast and deep
Pulling out the litter with the tide
While engulfing all of the
Heavy silence of the room

From records to cassettes to CD's
From concerts
With microphones projecting
Sounds across stage
With screaming fans below
To singing in the shower
Where your only audience is yourself...
No matter what the form
It emanates confidence in every note

The beat of the drum
Pounds through my body
Coursing through my veins
The energy making me feel radiant
So much better than a sugar rush
There's only one way to express it; To dance
To lose yourself to the sound of the music
In a blissful connection between
Body and spirit

Never are you lonely when
You hear this melodic sound
Like a warm friend
Who understands all
Knows all
And judges none

(My sister Sarah Hohol and Carlie Glanville and Chris Glanville helped me write a few lines)

    I think this is the best poem that I have seen on this site. It is rhythmic, full of breautiful expressions, and it takes a very broad topic, namely music, and describes it effects on you, giving the reader a way to describe the effect of music on him/her. Most people find it hard to put into words what music does, but you have done it in a most poetic fashion. I love this poem. (Report) Reply

    Tiffany, you took me back to my own schooldays of music, emotion, dancing and getting off on the lyric of the day.
    This poem is an evocation of a zeitgeist that belies your age.
    I am genuinely impressed by your writing. The acknowledgements speak of your honesty too. Kudos. (Report) Reply

    This is similar to Ye Faithful. A DJ played at the Goerlitzer park in Berlin one night, his small set powered by a car battery, the moon was big and orange in the horizon, and I danced my ass off until the police came and shut us down. BTW, Harrasment at the Goerlitzer Park, is about my encounter with the German police. (Report) Reply
