When The Music Stops

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

It’s awfully silent when the music stops

Yet the thoughts are somehow amplified. Oh, that deafening sound of silence!

Something dies when the music stops

One day you’re hot and then suddenly you’re not.

Just like that.

It’s difficult to keep dancing when the music stops

With nothing there to set the rhythm or the tempo

Feet all tangled, with nowhere to go.

I wish they’d play my favourite song again.

Just one more time.

Just so I can dance to that familiar beat.

Things aren’t quite as bright when the music stops
