A Song - Poem by David Harris

There are days when a song
will buzz around inside our head.
We will hear its tune everywhere we go.
We’ll sing it over and over
and no matter what we do
that song remains with us for days on end.
Then like magic
it will fade into the background
and something else
will take its place,
but while its there
it drives us wild
thinking of ways
to get rid of that song
whirling around inside our head.

    David, you find the poetry in the everyday. Yes, that song (often such a silly one) plays on a loop in your brain and nearly drives you crazy! And when it's stopped you daren't even think about it for fear of beginning the process all over again. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    I like this alot. I can't really put my finger on just what makes it tick so well, but I get the feeling that there is more to it than just the description of a tune stuck in your head. Very nice work, I'm new to this, but will definately check out more of your stuff. (Report) Reply
