Silent Fuzz

Updated on March 23, 2013
PDXKaraokeGuy profile image

Justin W. Price, AKA PDXKaraokeGuy, is a freelance writer, blogger, and award-nominated author based out of Juneau, Alaska.

I wrote this short little poem when I was sixteen and then performed it in my first band, Five Minutes Cooler, from that time until we broke up in 1998. Unfortunately, I have no digital copies of the song so I can't play it for you, but hopefully you'll enjoy the lyrics. I've reprinted them here without any change at all.



Silent Fuzz

burned myself again

i won't burn no more

i made a request towards heaven

again i reached

into the oven

so much for heaven

all i hear is silent fuzz

      Tough reality poem bro, Yikes I hate getting burned it happened to me when I was young and it surely sucked, and I got a beating by my grand father for playing with matches. I'll never forget that moment, nope.

      Thanks for sparking this memory PDX, nice and sweet straight to the point Poem, that has deep meaning embedded into it as well. Cool stuff!

      Thumbs up and sharing!

      ha, no, but I can see where you'd make the mistake, which sorta furthers my point :-)

      The picture from the fuzz looks like the picture from the modals. I thought it was the same thing.

      Cogerson, I'm sure I could find a way. I just lack the interest at the moment!

      Hi PDX

      Burned by love. That is what comes to my mind when I read your poem.

      Short on words but filled with much meaning.

      Voted up and awesome.

      Racin. It's not as glamorous as it sounds. Unless u make a living at it it's mostly writing songs in a sweaty garage and then cramming into a tiny van with five guys and tons of equipment, driving for eight hours, lugging gear up and down stairs and narrow hallways, playing the same song 100 times just so the demo recording can sound okay, making $50 (to split 5 ways) and maybe getting a free hamburger, sleeping for two hours and driving to the next location. It's fun, but hardly glamorous.

      Angl, thanks for reading and commented. Much appreciated!

      Short but very poignant. I think most of us have been there at some stage in our lives,

      @ Man: Indeed. I've sadly lost much of my interest in playing music, though i suspect I'll return. I do do karaoke. check out my HUB "My First Time"

      @ Frank- thanks for saying so!

      @ Cardisa: brevity is my forte. Thanks for reading!

      @ Carlon- I imagine that's not a good thing?

      @ Nell- I have it on cassette, but it's before I learned how to sing.

      @ Blog- I appreciate your comment very much.

      @ Vinaya- that's a wonderful little poem! Thanks for positing it here!

      @ Sunnie Day- thanks for that analysis. Pretty close to what I was thinking when I wrote it. I appreciate your comment!

      @ Gypsy- thanks! Sometimes we are our own worst enemy!

      Thank you all for the reads and the comments. You guys are very very appreciated!

      Too hot to touch we all get burned now and then unfortunately it's part of the pain we have to bear in life. So simple yet so meaningful.

      Humm..thinking someone got burned once..it was hot..maybe hurt alot..made a request towards heaven, didnt wait for the answer..attempted once more...this time feeling the burn..unable to move,.numb..only watching the pain..

      This is deep and only my interpretation PDX..Really deep.

      I hear intense buzz inside

      That takes me

      into the lake

      perhaps

      it is not a lake

      but the clouds so intriguing!

      Good stuff my man! I've published several of my old songs under poetry. Seems we have some stuff in common at least music wise. I'm an old rockin roller. Me and old band mates still get together every year to do a reunion gig up in Omaha. I still do some open mics and an occasional karaoke here in Arizona. Love to sing and bang my guitars.

      Looking forward to reading more from you my man!
