Music is the only pang needed To fend these feelings of being lost Music is the only peaceful remedy Against sleeplessness, against insomnia Music is the only drug one needs To calm or excite these chemicals in the body Music always stays with me Even during the worst days of my life Sometimes, it even seems That I can hear its own voice — The incarnation of these first sounds That make my whole body vibrate Isn’t it strange the hum in the syllable of human? Like we are sounds that resonate And frequencies that bind into one heart As to engender the primo beat of an existence Perhaps we’re melodious things Unaware of the frequencies we summon Going past the dream of our fate Having forgotten these imperceptible ultrasonic — The songs of winds on windy days These lullabies then put me to sleep Way to early for me to keep The present moment of the memory of it My memory fluctuates, and I can’t seem to fit When the gods of sounds make my body vibrate While my mind escapes far across this existence I’ve transcended as my mind ascended From the vibrational chords of its own mechanical resonance A far stellar settlement of sound-like impediment That exploded to its own agitated dream waves of liberance. -eiravel-
Yesterday we celebrated music day, hence this little poem. Music is a very inspiring medium for my mind, for it elevates me into places filled with creativity. Music has always been my favourite lieu of escapism, and I’ve always thought that it can be a good panacea to fight away morosity and as well as every other kind of affliction that gnaws the mind. I never feel alone when I listen to music — where there’s only me and the vibrations, only me and the message, something, almost mystical.
I love the idea and the stories of creation myth through sounds, words, or even through dance, because I’ve personally experienced these fit of vibrations that partook my whole body, or that strange tickling pulse in my head while listening to some music. You don’t have to hear to experience musical sounds, all you have to do is put your hands against a boom-bass-tic speaker turned on to the max to feel these vibrations, and there, right in your head, a musical world is born.
