A song that has to have the word darling
creeps in through the radio's breath
like a ghost that is pretending it is not there
when no one can see it anyway. (no one but me)
I remember when you personified sound
when you spoke to me,
you turned syllables and similes
into loving people and Greek Gods
and you cried because
the radio static sounded like those same
Gods and people snapping their precious necks.
I find something beautiful
in the bone crunching crackle
of their mortality,
I find something alive in the divine death
I still find pretty songs in this old
songs that just have to have that word, darling
This is gorgeous - you had me at the opening line x
A lot of hope and nostalgic longing all in one, here. Beautiful.
Loving the flow and feel of that second stanza. Well written altogether
I like it. a tad creepy but not overly morbid. It kind of reminds me of the corny song about being sick of love songs, but unable to turn off the radio. no idea what its called though.
I think I know exactly what you're talking about. I had that in mind. Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment!
This is so beautiful. I love every single word written in this piece.
Wow, thank you tons, that means a lot.
I'm not entirely sure what's going on, but I love the comparison of music to stories!
