My Bass

October 28, 2008
By Anthony Vega, Hawthorne, NJ

I can feel the beat,
the deep tones humming into my ears,
my fingers crawl across the strings,
the sounds drips down he walls,
audible through the windows,
and down the streets,
for a short while I am liberated,
when I play my bass, I am free.

The author's comments:
I've been playing my bass guitar for a few years now. That's what inspired me in this instance.

this is very nice. the first two lines really bring out the feeling of music running through my viens. if you're interested in revising this at all, i would suggest creating the idea of you flowing down the street with your music. no longer bound to the seat, but able to fly through the air on the notes. keep up the good work!! the idea and your inspiration are fantastic! it results in a very unique, influental peice.
