Music for the Soul

Music for the Soul
Music for the Soul

The heart sways with emotion,
the mind transfixed,
melodies flow like raging rivers
into the dark corners of my soul,
cobwebbed spaces light deprived,
yet music like a healing hand
does open me wide,
where beauty is more than perfection,
more than flesh renewed,
heart imbued with love’s creative spark,
music’s delicate touch like blood pumping,
inspiring the new, the tears that flow
as shedding the past, relinquishing all
that does not belong
within openness.

A well of emotions rise
from a sorely missed emission,
a store of erratic feelings bottled and capped
in the darkness of my sanctum,
yet music find its way to the core of me,
and I am found, bled and returned to myself,
soaring in the stream of beauty personified,
tears streaming, heart thumping,
as every note shudders flesh and mind,
raising nerves from a dull repose,
and enlivening this spark that is my soul,
my very being of energy,
and I sway, my every cell in rhythm,
accepting the giving,
the glorious gift of music.

On my knees I praise the mind of creation,
a mind whose music touched me so,
and hope that they too know,
what this opens, this synergy of connection
I experience when attuned to them,
and perfection isn’t a striving, rather a happening,
when all aligns for the seeing and blind,
just feeling the intentions,
the expressions that touch our deepest self,
find vibrations akin to joy within,
and in experience a letting go
of all the superfluous,
the pointless troubles we amass
in living not true to self.

    I so relate to the effect music has on you, Tony. Music can touch my soul deeply with varying emotions, some so sweet it feels like floating in such beauty it cannot be described. Music can bring on tears just from love of the melody or the artist who created it. Your verse is lovely, very emotive and a pleasure to read.

    Ah, music. My ultimate savior. In just so many ways, your words imbibe my soul, so deeply within what source exists to give me that for which I long. Music has always been the source of my reclamation, from where my spirit has flown, to return inside and reconnect with that living world which I have just barely escaped. Thank you, Tony, for this soul lifting piece!
