electric ecstasy

No Matter What (Badfinger song)

No Matter What (Badfinger song) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I wonder exactly what it is
about a sweet melody and harmony
that sends pulses of electric ecstasy
to the rock n roll heart of me

why does the driving rhythm and beat
and the urgent pounding sound of a drum
result in the endless tapping of my feet
and the desire to grab a guitar and strum

why does the lovely sound of power pop music
have this strange dark power over me
such that these three minute riffs and hooks
no matter what will not set my singing soul free

    You are letting it rip now, Ron!
    Excellent rythm to this poem, beautiful.

      Thank you. I had my music on while I was writing “wind swept hair” and realized I hadn’t written a poem just about the music I enjoy listening to so much. Or If I have, I have forgotten. Lol. 🙂

        See? Do more! Gotta have fun, otherwise, what is the point? Oui? Smile.
