Negativity builds in my veins

Threatening to suffocate my heart

Thoughts drag through a mud

That coffee fails to clear

But to move


Release that toxic tension

Unhinge my mind through the

Art and expression and strangeness

All permitted in space that you define

Tension drips through my grounded feet

Music takes away my preoccupations

And as those final notes play

My heart pounds away

But my soul has

Never been
