The room shakes harder as the beat builds up
Turning into an earthquake ready to rumble
Crashing forward, people begging for the front
Items crunching on the floor never again to make it up

Heat so unbelievable it’s hard to stay conscious
Chocking in a pool of sweat, fighting to stay up
Adrenalin pumping only for the rising beat
The moment the whole room has been waiting to meet

The beat finally drops after what felt like years of build up
Screams ringing through the echoing drop
The room violently convulses with the crowd
Embracing the earthquake.

I had recently gone to Bassnectar (a dubstep artist's concert) and I just HAD to write a sound poem about the intensity of the beat dropping. I hope you enjoy it!
