Music In Nature
Tears were dripping from my eyes. Eventually I was lost in his thoughts, I was day dreaming about him. Five years of relationship ended in 5 second. I found myself in guilt and pain’s ride. Sometimes I thought heart breaks hurts the most. I felt lonely and lost again. Once again, I was at the same turn, I couldn’t find my path. I couldn’t move, all I was waiting for him to come back. But I had to choose a path – for my happiness; for myself.
I promised myself not to look back. I started ignoring my thoughts and grab the phone from side table. I started scrolling through it to unleash my pain. Eventually I played our favorite song, no matter how I tried not listen that. I played it for last time, I took a deep breath and closed my eyes. I felt the lyrics and my heartbeats started synchronized with melody. For a minute I was lost in it. I opened my eyes and found myself smiling. I felt fresh and alive once again.
I opened my laptop and started writing….
For me Music is feeling,
Feeling of being lost,
Lost in thoughts of freedom,
Freedom from pain,
Pain of holding grudges,
Later I found music as a medicine,
Medicine given by nature,
Chirping birds, Dripping water,
Blowing winds and flowing river,
Music doesn’t belong to beats,
Real music found in deep dark World,
Where it brings lights and happiness,
I decided to kept in my mind,
Melodies in my Heartbeats,
AND lyrics in my soul….
