A Punkish Experience - Poem by Alex Gomez

A cluster of pent-up energy,
Chugging guitar riffs,
Hardcore pounding drums,
Deep basslines, and
Rough vocals suffocates me.

A volatile atmosphere compels
Me to headbang to the rhythm,
As if the music has possessed
My very soul.

All of my rationale is clouded
By a barbaric instinct to groove
In a violent manner.

I am a willing slave,
A free captive,
Forfeiting my spirit
To the animalistic majesty
Of the music.

    I love classic rock & metal so I know exactly what this refers to. So simple on such a difficult topic. Very well-written especially for your age. I'm younger than you so I am not very good at using such complex vocabulary. Unique poetry my friend, very different. Why don't poets write like this anymore? (Report)Reply
