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
