Most Musical Poem

Heather S., Paradise, CA By TheHerbArtist, Paradise, CA

I can write the most musical poem you've ever seen
I bet my Vic Firth drum sticks on it
Music isn't just a thing to do, it is a language
A way of life
It can bring emotions so overbearing
Like reeling a crossbow in the abyss
Or salt on a wound
It can feel like a physical puncture
Never obsolete, never distant from the present
When the harmonies collide and all else fails
You think of the music
The beautiful soul that did this to you
What does it do to me?
It makes me ache with longing to apart of such beautiful creations
To always love, never forget the look of this musician
The crease of concentration on their forehead

This is a great poem - you have a knack for taking an interesting theme/idea and then create a wonderful poem. You seem to have a lot of different styles, and that's good too. Keep it up!

I really like what you've done here. Reading this inspired me, which is the best thing writing can do! You articulated something that I think so many of us Teen Inkers feel, especially the poetry bunch. I understand the difficulty of conveying the ideas of one form of art in another, and congratulate you for doing it so well. Keep writing!

This poem makes me feel all of this longing.  I think we have all felt this need to be part of the beauty of music. You conveyed this fleeting magic wonderfully.
