Maybe It's Music

I roughly press the headphones into my ears
As if I otherwise wouldn't be able to hear
Cupping my hands around music,
As if that would let me hold it

And maybe, just maybe
If I can bring it back to me
Someone else will see
What it could be

I press my hands flat against the sides of my face
As if that can keep my focus in the proper place
Capturing the sounds against my ear drums
As if that will once again make my heart thrum

And maybe, just maybe
If I can bring it back to me
Someone else will see
What it could be

I mercilessly press my fingers together
As if that will let me hold on a little better
Ignoring the way it escapes my hold
As if it is water freed from the winter cold
And maybe, just maybe
If I can bring it back to me
Someone else will see
What it could be

Maybe it is music
But maybe it is a prayer
I silent hope that as the notes vanish,
I can escape somewhere

Dancing through the lyrics
Singing so soft that I know
No one will actually hear it

Because maybe it is music
But maybe it is my prayer
A silent sigh for salvation
So I can smile in any sitation

Drifting through the chorus
Harmonizing when there is
a duet, since it is just us

And maybe it is music,
But it feels a lot like a prayer
The melody escaping so sweetly
As we vanish into the air.


Maybe, just maybe. :)

I want rainbow headphones D<

This is a very thoughtful poem. I like how you used "thrum" Great!

This reminded me of this one song I thought you might like. It's called The Sound of Muzak. (listen to it!)

Muzica est viata~ (Music is life; That is where I got my chosen name from. xD)

I love writing about music, but it is always awful (which is why I put two poems in one xD)
