I really do. And it’s not that I’m thinking in rhyme, but there are days where words and sentences just wander into my head and turn themselves into lyrical structures.
Sometimes, it’s because I’ve just watched an awesome battle. Sometimes, it’s because my mind runs and runs. Sometimes, it’s because my mind stays still. Non-moving. Focused on one thing. One thought. Sometimes, one person. And sometimes the thought moves again. One future. One possible timeline. One person. Did I say that already?
Some days I have a song stuck in my head. Sometimes, it’s because I just have a song in my head. Or just one melody. Maybe a verse. And on some days, it’s that I’m making up a song, all day long.
But then there are days like today, where I’m in a mood. It doesn’t matter if it’s a light mood or a dark mood. The song creates itself in my brain space. And sometimes that song has no melody. And the lyrics float in the right order, but on ever-changing frequencies; a pattern ready to resolve, dissent, and resolve again.
And that’s today. The lyrics are written, but not yet in the open. That’s what happens next.
Sometimes in lyrics, I live. I think.
Hey, I love this cat. We used to be roommates.
