I think this was probably written at like 3 AM while listening to the radio and trying to ignore my brain.

Ooh okay now I'm considering the title of this piece to Stuck in My Head. Idk. Any thoughts?

If We Sing

FREE WRITING

the lyrics to the music always seem
to creep into my verses and sometimes
they're so stealthy it's just me versus
the song and sometimes I can barely
hear the me, even while she writes
in third person, but lately, she's realized
this sense of self, the pulse, heart beat,
synth needle and thread stitching each 
stanza together, isn't her at all—it's the
rhythm of the music and it deafens you
while it swallows them and our heads 
are pounding and it's too quiet and it's
too loud and

it's music.
I look around at the transcripted battleground, 
and it's beautiful.
and it's not the music, 
but it is music. somehow

within this deafening silence, the madness
produced a voice within me: not sane, not 
calm, but noisy, and loud in its footsteps.

we don't care who hears us.

    Wow! This is beautiful and the rhythm throughout was spectacular!! Great job! And yes, the best thoughts come at night! XD This part is my favourite because it just flows so nicely, “ to creep into my verses and sometimes
    they're so stealthy it's just me versus [this was so clever]
    the song”
    Also, I’m really new so I’d love if you could check out one of my posts!

    rhythm of the music and it deafens you
    while it swallows them and our heads
    are pounding and it's too quiet and it's
    too loud

    My favorite lines by far! Love it!
