There is a savage beauty in music
When a song completely consumes you
Calls to your current or a past self
Accuracy tearing at your soul
Squeezing your heart
Overwhelming you, emotion fit to bursting
And what can you do other than experience
Breathe through guitar riffs & voices crooning in your ear
As your mind screams
This thing, I couldn’t put into words
Like calling to like
That rising lump in your throat as it slowly saunters to an end
Leaving you with that empty feeling
Do you press repeat?
Do you suffer and celebrate through the experience once more?
Like a scab you want to pick at, the refrain stuck in your head
The tune cycling through your brain again, and again, and again
How do they do this?
These artists that read your inner thoughts through melodies
Or is that your thoughts are not so wholly unique
You just needed someone else to express them for you.
