SONG SANCTUARY
(6/9/17)

there's nothing
like getting home
at the end
of a long day

turning on
the stereo

cranking up
the volume

hiding
from the world
within the
music

the melody

the lyrics

the beat

transporting me
beyond
trivial
daily affairs

getting
the blood
flowing

the skin
tingling

the gut
twitching
from the energy
of the art

feeling
more
than just human
for an hour
or two

finally
unfortunately
the switch
goes to OFF

I'm stripped
of my rhythmic
cocoon

left exposed
to society's
cacophony
once more
