Like just another day I was browsing through youtube and came across a brilliant piece of music.
So brilliant it was, that I listened to every video on the channel. You could say I was drowned in music,
eyes closed and volume on full blast. Suddenly I began writing as though wanting to respond to that beautiful piece.
I’ve done them no justice but want to share it with you none the less.
The Cello Song – (Bach – with seven more cellos) by The Piano Guys
And this is what I wrote –
A rush so profound, took over me –
Words fail me, as I sway to its tune,
Like a trance, my hands moved
As music filled my ears,
The earth gave way
My hands, took a life of their own
Moving as though in response…
Up and down, like the brook and the breeze
Enchanted I am, in his ephemeral tunes;
A new reality manifests,
As I struggle to word my emotions,
I’m drawn over by a grasp so strong,
It pulls me away-
Away from reality,
Away from my worries,
Away from every thing.
Lost I am, in the tunes of the soul
For it was, a tune for the soul,
Every note, every strum, left me yearning for more
A tune so profound, so lost in it…
So lost I was that I could no longer wonder
Wonder how a sound so hypnotic could ever be,
Words are now paltry, as my heart surges,
Like the waves of the tide.
I crank up the volume, and shut my eyes-
In a tune so magnificent
So primal, yet opulent
So elegant, yet bare
So many words, yet it barely does justice
To the sheer opulent grandeur,
The ecstatic surge,
Of my very being,
As I listen to his cello.
And all I want is for this moment to never end.
I know I barely do justice. Such is the nature of music, for it makes you struggle to express it, only to realize that you’ve barely done it any justice.
None the less I’d love to know what you think.
