The Paragon Of Music

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 ā€”
The incarnation of these first sounds 
That make my whole body vibrate

Isnā€™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 weā€™re melodious things
Unaware of the frequencies we summon
Going past the dream of our fate
Having forgotten these imperceptible ultrasonic ā€”
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 canā€™t seem to fit
When the gods of sounds make my body vibrate
While my mind escapes far across this existence

Iā€™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.

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 ā€” where thereā€™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.
