I Belong to Music MAG

By Sima Rose, Albuquerque, NM

We’ve all seen heart fiends, dumb beings, moral shot with a bullet
Diluted wonderland selves praying to be accepted by nobodies
Romance cutting hearts in half and leaving them under a tint of blue I cozy up to grinding notes that slit my throat and make me float
Fill me up better than one of those lickety split jack rabbits
that leave more to be desired
Music makes me smile and gives me faith
I don’t need stupid guys, white lies, or cloudy skies
I want notes waltzing on a staff
That slip and slide up and down my curves getting me high on melodic life
Music is my lover as it pumps into my heart into the beat of my own drum in the concert in my chest
So shake my hips and dance like this
As deeper and deeper the melody flows into my marrow
Rushing, caressing and missing me, making love to me from the inside out
L.O.V.E. won’t suffocate me in anticipation of shredded hopes
So lovers crawl up legs like ants
But music courses through me, learns me, feels me
Opens the eyes of my soul in a tranquil dance of eternal sunshine
Music belongs to me as I belong to Music
It does not cheat, it does not hit, it does not lie
Hit me with all your music because with music you don’t feel a thing but peace

Really good poem, you have a really clever type of writing style. It would be AWESOME for journalism as well as poetry. Just a side note.

i like this :) alot :)

the ending is the weakest part though. not necesarily "weak", but in such a good poem, the "weakest" part. consider revising it? it begins sounding a little less original and intelligent and a little more cliche.

but really good! i relate!! :)
