Drownin’ in Music

The night’s dark,

And the moon’s acting clandestine,

I’ve had too much to think,

And even when the weather’s just fine,

I just can’t sleep at night.

So I search for a person,

Or an illusion to hold on to,

Don’t want to be needy,

But I don’t know what to do.

So I try to intrude,

And look at your picture,

But you’re way too busy,

Why bother? I wonder.

So I plug the headphones in,

To drown the loneliness within,

To dance it all out,

Until I’m left with no doubts.

It takes me places,

I’ve always loved to go,

The corners and spaces,

And mistakes left to atone.

It drowns me with its force,

And I love the ways it sounds,

It just makes me feel,

Like a queen defending her crown,

Like a lover who was never loved,

Like a flower facing the force,

Like a boat struggling to reach the shore,

But above all,

A warrior who gets through it all..
