Music Take Me Hostage

Updated on August 10, 2017

Bind my soul with the notes that you have played

Caress my ear drums with the soothing sounds and vibrations

Comfort me when my heart is broken and the pieces merely fixable

Sing to me when I doubt I can make it through this whole experience

Take control of the emotions which seem to engulf my sense of reality

Without you I would be lost and confused on how to feel these days

Open my eyes to see a better tomorrow when you take over

Sing a praise and reverb the glory to our creator and savior

Continue to invent those unique sounds that cannot be replicated

Move pass the boundaries and limitations that have a hold on you

Continue to create and grow and expand new environments for our ears

Disturb the air with creations that take you to a whole new level

Blind us to the songs that have tormented us a long time

Continue to bring those artists the inspire and satisfy our craving

It is okay if you repeat yourself but do not copy your own work

Continue to accompany us for the long commute and make it bearable

Show us your love by allowing our body to feel the results of your creative art

Continue to always have a song for that moment in our lives that make it easier

Music is thy pulse on which the world can operate at a better pace

Show us how we should strive for peace and love for another

Thank you for the songs that help us deal with stress and anger

For creating songs that help us funnel our aggression

      Nice poem Ryan. :-)

      Music, is the only part,

      of human act,

      that never is hypocrite,

      Meant to travel straight,

      from one heart to another heart.

      Very creative! Music "takes me hostage", as well, and you have described this most beautifully!

      This is great. Thank you for it.

      This kind of was melancholy for me because of "The Day The Music Died". I was too young to know the 3 great artists but I love there music. McClean did them justice.

      Linda that is an amazing analogy. I have never thought of it that way but it makes perfect sense. I will cherish music even more now. Thank you so much for sharing this insightful thought.

      Have you ever stopped to consider that it is our "other" senses (taste, smell, hearing) not sight that store our most precious memories? (Or at least that's my story, and I'm sticking to it).

      For example think about the first time you visited a county fair. I'll bet what you remember best is the sounds of the rides, the smell of the onion burgers, your first taste of cotton candy. When you hear, smell, or taste those again you are immediately transported back to that moment in time. You might not remember the face that gave you your first kiss, but I'll bet you can feel it still.

      I think that is why a sound track is so important in a movie. You aren't always aware of its presence, but it is there, as another central character and the movie would be empty without it. I know this comment is long, but I want to share one more thing with you. I don't know your taste in music, but one of my favorite movie composers was John Barry. He composed for movies such as "Our of Africa" and "Somewhere in Time"

      This made me think about all of the musicians who never make it big but who touch the lives of others nonetheless.
