    CLOSURE IN MUSIC…


    I’ve been longing to tell u…but..time wouldn’t give me time.
    The music seemed so sad, everyday, my heart seemed to sink further and
    Further into the same old rhythm of miss him, loved him, miss him, loved
    Him, miss him, loved me…but then it threatened to stop if I didn’t stop.

    Then when I least expected the music was there, so loud and free and u were there and I was and through
    The vibrations and beats and drums of the mesmerizing sounds of voices, loud voices all around, we danced..

    We danced our conversation through and through and though no words except eye contact and pulsating moves were spoken I felt u saying everything u wanted to say
    And I too spoke so loud in the music and through your eyes the messages of my heart seems to travel to your heart…though no words were spoken..we said it all..

    Tonight I was the girl, tonight I was the lover, tonight we were soulmates tonight the tears and hurt and pain and scorn and missing and sadness that has so brightly characterized our union had disappeared….tonight, we danced. On and on, the music blurred…your hands around my waist your chest close to mine my head on your shoulder…yes we danced…your lips on mine my eyes fixed to yours your smile…infectious….tonight we danced…tonight I am the wanted, I am the gift that time
    Has finally decided to give u. Tonight I felt free and finally able to fly far and away and
    From this hurtful love and painful love which just for this moment…became pure and chaste and without a blemish..

    When the music stopped and the crowds surfaced again….i knew that I had found my peace, my ticket to the future my many yesterdays which should have been the start of my tomorrow had finally come…I’d loved u tonight, I’d kissed u tonight, told u that I loved u Tonight and now….I dance on my own…at the joy I’ve found knowing that u are no longer mine and that actually, its OKAY…I’ve found my closure in music..

    music can get you pass the hard times
    the bad times
    the sad times
    that possess your mind
    i remember when i was down and out
    cause i lost in a love battle bout
    sade
    was the only way
    that sadness was kicked out of my frey
    for that i had to pray
    miss badu
    made my soul feel anew
    while miss blige
    took me on a ride...

    i loved dis poem...so true so very true
    peace
    khasm
