A Song Addiction: A Poem

Updated on November 25, 2011
Source


As a musical melody meets my ears


The cacophony of sounds relieves my fears


The joy bubbles up in a child-like way


My features turn upwards, they're bound to stay

Music is my passion, a pleasure I can't resist


A tickling of the ears, It placates and it assists


The lyrics accompany these various leveled notes


They work in harmony; upon each other, they quite nearly dote


As the musical synchronization is becoming absolute


The happiness is gratifying, More resolved like an ancient coot


Then the sounds begin their waning, rolling down in a grand fanfare


The last refrain is heard at the end, the silence is deafening with only vacant air...

      So anyway I guess some 'addiction' can be benign; but it's always important that it can be reconciled with the glory of God; otherwise something starts to take the place of God's goodness and many mercies to us. (If this makes any sense.)

      Blessings.

      Ty lol.

      Some of the examples I gave were intended as being positive categories of addictions, too, you know.

      Blessings.

      I guess too much of anything is a bad thing. Although, I meant this as a positive addiction. Ramble on, f; ramble on (it doesn't bother me). :)

      BTW, the title is interesting. The word 'addictive' is a strange word, if we think about it, because it can have a really vast and even contradictory range of meanings and connotations. Like, in a narrow, negative and clinical sense, a doctor might say, 'Try to limit your coffee intake to one or two cups per day, because caffeine is addictive'. Or, we might read somewhere: 'The Alcoholics Anonymous speaker warned the meeting of the great problems that come with alcohol addiction'. Then it can be used in an ambiguous way, interpreted widely according to one's presuppositions, as in: 'The Kennedy Library researcher prepared a paper, ignored by the pharmaceutical companies, on the addictive nature of dependence on prescription drugs'. (To some people this usage might not seem ambiguous at all, except among the Republicans.) Then it can be used in a rather pleasantly benign metaphorical context, as in: 'The lady who owns the parlor smiled, saying to the first time client: 'Once you've felt the buzz of the needle, you may be back for another tattoo, because it can be addictive'. It can also be used in a sinister, metaphorical context, as in: 'The angry crowd seemed increasingly addicted to the segregationists' fiery speeches'. So I guess the question is begged: is all rock music addictive in an exclusively benign way? or can there sometimes be too much of a good thing?

      (Sorry if I've rambled too much.)

      Blessings.

      EBower: Interesting lines! (You may wish to check the spelling: 'cacophony'.)
