find what you love and let it kill you

bright eyed young thing

my dear,
find what you love and let it kill you.
let it drain you of your all. let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
for all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ falsely yours

livin’ in the beat

it feels me, and i feel it.  the sway, the emotion, and the vibe.  music.  gosh, i tell ya, music can be everything.

you see, words are powerful and imaginative on their own.  so, when words are combined with a melodic tone the story transforms into a whole new, beautiful prose.

i find a sense of release that can cure or intensify any given mood that i am in.  sadness can intensify. anger can augment.  happiness can explode.  that’s the power of music.  it gets me through life with one beat, lyric, and chord at a time.

although, i didn’t always have a love for music.  it grew from a summer car ride as a kid.  lost in thought, music helped me through that day’s journey.  now with each subsequent day, music continues to prove its worth in my life.

i ask you, as the reader, what’s your relationship with music?  after some serious reflection, it may just be more powerful than you originally thought. 🙂

happy monday!
