She can feel the music in her soul
a rhythm that calms her to her bones
such lovely sounds echoing
filling the silence she tries to avoid
making her skin prick
her hair stand
her body want to close in on itself
in a way that screams joy
in a way that makes her sad
and angry all at once.
She can close her eyes and feel it
where her heart and mind unite
where her soul lives
her memories sleep.
The world just melts into the sound
filling her with love and rhythm
and such a sweet sadness.
