This-Is-My-Musical-Soul

I helped myself.
wiped my own tears.
put balm over fresh wounds.
plastered parts of my heart that still were hurting.
gave myself time.
read books that soothed my soul.
heard music that calmed my nerves.
watched movies that made me smile.
bit by bit, piece by piece, I put
myself back together again.
and I gave myself a second chance
because I know that if I didn’t,

then no one else would.

And I know that my poetry usually makes no sense, it’s a thing called love that compels us to keep reading. Would you care to know why my favorite color is red? I used to have a friend named Kevin and it was his favorite color. He was the flamboyant and most colorful of us in the group. Popular with the ladies and loyal to his friends. I was the one in the backseat laughing to their thoughts when I really had none of my own. Maybe that’s why I enjoy writing so much. Maybe that’s why I love the color red. He painted his room red once, I remember things changing right around then. The drugs were getting a little heavier even with his teenage youth, the drugs will rip right through you. Painkillers will kill your emotions, you don’t want to feel a thing. I can relate to Kevin, I fucking love painkillers too. I shut myself off from everyone, but occasionally I enjoy the company. I’m awkward and my thoughts are kinda dim, so I always liked being around him. Are you familiar with the literary term foil? A foil is a character who contrasts with another character in order to highlight particular qualities of the other character. I feel like he was like that for me. I always saw myself as a little too blue, I wanted to be something worth loving, I wanted to be a little more like him, I want to kiss life into everything, I wanted to live, I wanted to be more than a shadow of a group of peers that did drugs and listened to melancholy and nostalgic techno after school hours. I don’t know how he’s doing or what he’s up to. The last thing I heard was he’s into needles now. Rumors plague this tiny town, we were raised from imperfections and we grew up to taste cigarettes that numb our gums. He had the kind of laugh that made you want to be his friend. It’s funny though, none of my friends initially liked me. Until they got to know me, empty and hollow, a sponge– the one who listened to the problems, never really any of my own. I get lost in my thoughts, I know. My poetry is scattered, I know. I don’t convey structure or rhymes, I don’t hide in between the rules. My words are more scribbles than they are truly masterpieces. Would you like to know why I write? I used to know someone that said the shoreline was like a bed and naps were always possible– she waited there everyday for inspiration. She would tell me the tiny stories inside of her head that had nowhere to go, it’s funny. I never really listened to her, I just enjoyed the company of love and to be loved. Love, what is it? When I wrote my first poem for her, I didn’t know where it came from or why I wanted to write it. I just knew that I had to write it. It had to be done. I had to read it to her. Let me tell you, if your first poem was a love poem, it was probably the most cringe thing you’ve ever created. Ever. Period. But still, I loved it. It was bad, but it had feelings. You always miss the feeling more than you do the person and that’s the saddest thing I’ve ever had to realize. It really shouldn’t be, but it is. You never really understand your mistakes until it’s just you. You only want them back when you’re alone. It’s been so long, I don’t keep track of the days anymore. Hell, she’s married now. I shouldn’t be writing this. She’s going to read it anyway. It doesn’t matter at this point. I guess she left poetry inside of these palms for good measure, she loved attention. A lot of it. The more, the better. Maybe I stopped paying attention. Maybe I got too comfortable. Maybe that’s why I love writing poetry, in a way it just means that I still love her. Lost kids who didn’t know how to love, another foil. You know, I never really liked to read books until I met her. She had a smile made from your doggy eared books, you know, your favorite line you always had to reread or quote during a conversation. She had the kind of laugh that made you want to get in on the joke even though you were the one telling it. I loved that laugh almost as much as I loved Kevin’s. I don’t talk to these two anymore, I don’t remember much about the memories, only the feelings that they left. You can’t find loyalty amongst pill users, they always use. Trust me, I know. I’ve been swearing off painkillers for months. You won’t find a love like that again because every relationship is unique in its own way. You can’t recreate the old flames with your new ones. You need to move on. I haven’t really lived life. Maybe you’re just like me. Maybe you’re stuck at a job that you don’t like and maybe life just doesn’t make much sense. So you blackhole more drugs to ease the disaster that is you. Nothing hurts, you just don’t want to remember anything that might hurt– right? It really shouldn’t be, but it is. I listen to music more often than I converse with people. Music influences my soul in a way that people cannot. I just turned 24, but I’m still a little confused about who I am. Does any 24 year old have their shit figured out? Do you ever feel like your dreams and aspirations are slowly dying? I’ve always felt like an old man. I’m boring and I don’t dance too much, the only thing good about me is my writing. It’s the only thing I’m half decent at, but I hate that too. I don’t answer anonymous questions anymore because I feel like my thoughts aren’t good enough. How can I help you if I can’t even help myself? Red rose petal poetry pressed onto the stove kind of writing– it really shouldn’t hurt, but it does. I’ll always miss the days when things were simpler. I didn’t care as much. I didn’t smoke as much. I didn’t think as much. It was just simple. No hard facts, just some stupid kids getting high behind a dark house and running into ghosts in every room. No broken hearts, just some teenagers who wanted to figure love out with a knife in hand waiting to hug each other. I’ll pry the knife real slow and we’ll call it love kind of love, ain’t it love? I love you doesn’t even sound right anymore, so I’ll say nothing. I miss my old friends, but we’ve changed so much– I wonder if they’ll even recognize me. My life is insignificant and minuscule, but we must all seek to find our purpose, to bring meaning to the clutter, and to add more fire to the chaos that is life. I don’t want to die angry, I want to die with a smile. You don’t get to do anything twice, you don’t get to correct your mistakes– so make enough for your self-reflection drunk nights. You don’t get to unlove people, so pick the right ones to fall in love with– don’t worry, you won’t need to remember all of their names, just the feelings. You don’t get to unfriend people, they’ll always be a part of you. A part of who you are. A part of who you will come to be. I keep slipping into the darkest parts of my mind and call it a life. I’ve been reading this book and it told me to dig deep. Why do I write? Why do I enjoy the burn of love? Over a few thousand poems, but 99.9 percent are indeed about love. Why do you want this kind of life? Well, darling– These words are as much yours as they are mine.

this is entirely inspired by the fact that my car picked up a nearby university’s radio station and i fell in love with the host who kept playing indie bangers i’ve never heard and had a really cute voice but here’s a stozier radio host au:

  • WNG108 is the newly created radio station broadcasted and run by the students of the university of southern maine and while there are multiple hosts, it’s primarily hosted by founders beverly marsh and richie tozier ( spotify playlist link here )
  • they’re known on the airwave as “bev and trashmouth” or “slut and the falcon” depending on which one is talking at the moment
  • stan’s a commuter student who lives roughly thirty minutes from campus and uses his aux to blast his music; he was never much of a radio guy 
  • cue to halloween and stan’s the dd for his friends as they bar hop and frat hop (him and ben using fakes because they aren’t 21 yet); on the drive back to the dorms bill proclaims stan’s music is lame and turns on the radio to the college station
  • they catch the tale end of a song before a nasally voice (probably the most irritating voice stan has ever heard) chimes in with “and that was something here by day wave! thank you for tuning into wang─ ouch, stop hitting me─” and he’s abruptly cut off by a feminine voice clarifying “our station isn’t called wang; trashmouth just thinks he can talk his into existence” before playing the next song
  • it’s a female cover of rebel rebel and everyone in the car is singing along (stan is singing, everyone else is teetering between slurring and screaming)
  • the next day when stan turns on his car to drive back home the radio instantly comes on and a chill indie song he doesn’t recognize is playing so he leaves it on instead of immediately switching to his aux
  • ( he shazams it before driving off; it’s milk by the 1975 )
  • stan ends up switching over to the radio almost entirely. there’s still times when he’ll plug in his aux but for the most part, he’s addicted to WNG108; they play his exact kind of music and music he never considered would be his kind
  • they also have hilarious segments; the main hosts are bev, trashmouth, eddie, and mike (stan isn’t sure if they’ve just never said trashmouth’s actual name or if he hadn’t been paying attention when they did) who have a kind of chemistry and banter that once had stan pulling over from laughing 
  • trashmouth in particular is fucking hilarious and stan’s basically in love with him 
  • bill figures this out pretty easily when they regularly listen to WNG108 and stan kinda smiles at all of trashmouth’s jokes and has said, on multiple occasions, “he’s got such a cool voice” (among “everything he plays is so good” “this guy is my musical soul mate” and laughing at obscure references trashmouth makes that no one else gets)
  • one day as stan’s listening to WNG108 while bird watching (because not all fucking birds fly south in the winter, bill, god) he hears bev during a quick call segment she’s doing with mike about missed connections: “we got our first caller on the line; what’s your missed connection?” “it’s actually not m-mine,” bill says and stan immediately knows it’s bill and wonders if bill’s calling in about ben’s obvious crush on bev “my friend’s literally in love with trashmouth” ben’s in love with trashmouth??? what ???? and then it becomes apparently obvious that bill isn’t talking about ben at all he’s talking about STAN and holy shit stan is going to fucking kill him
  • this is also when stan’s basically forced to acknowledge that yeah he has a major fucking crush on trashmouth and now the entire campus knows (granted the most they know is that a guy named stan likes trashmouth and stan doesn’t know many people outside his small friend group, so he should be relatively safe)
  • stan and bill basically kick the shit out of each other verbally while ben watches, eyes wide, like a kid caught in the middle of a divorce
  • “i’m doing you a F-F-F-FAVOR” “I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE” “oh s-s-so now you’re shallow?” back and forth type of shit and eventually they run out of steam and stan quietly says “this isn’t even gonna go anywhere. they probably get calls like that all the time.”
  • “this is kind of like sleepless in seattle” and ben forces the three of them into a blanket fort in his and bill’s room to watch the movie and shoot the shit until stan’s alright again
  • the next fucking day ( a friday ) as stan, bill, and ben are driving to stan’s to study for finals, stan absentmindedly turns on the radio just in time to catch
  • “this next song’s for stan the man, if you’re listening to wang and wanna get to know my wang,” before friday i’m in love by the cure plays and all three of them are fuckin SHOCKED !!! BITCH !!!!
  • they’re all shook™ and as soon as the song ends trashmouth and eddie get into it “ur friend said u like the cure” “why are they called the cure … what are they the cure-ing…” “i’m trying to pick someone up eds stop ruining it” “they should be called THE CAUSE!!!!”
  • ben and bill are fucking SCREAMING and ben’s got WNG108 on fucking speed dial and they answer him ON AIR
  • “i don’t have a request but i’m in the car with stan right now and he’s in love” and if stan wasn’t such a safe driver he would’ve turned around and fucking throttled ben and then eddie replies, ON AIR, “trashmouth looks like someone killed him most of the time but he’s smiling really big─ DO NOT FUCKING TOUCH ME” and the call drops as the next song immediately plays and boi bill and ben are SCREAMING
  • “HE LIKES YOU” “YOU HAVE TO MEET” “he doesn’t even know what i look like” “OH SO YOU’RE INS-S-SECURE NOW?” among other shit
  • it goes on like that for a few more days; each time trashmouth hosts he dedicates a song to “stan the man” and the night after their last finals and celebrating, stan gets drunk enough to think calling in is a good idea (with the aid of bill and ben egging him on of course)
  • “hullo” and bev says “what’s up, mystery man” just as trashmouth says “you should call eddie’s mom with that phone sex voice” and stan kind of trips over his words saying that he’s really fuckin’ drunk right now but he has a spotify playlist with a bunch of songs trashmouth has dedicated to him
  • bev cuts him off like “wait YOU’RE STAN???” and now she’s screaming too and gushing about how incessantly trashmouth talks about him and how he has a spotify playlist dedicated to him and how he’s been waiting on a call from him because he’s stalked half the school’s instagrams and can’t find stan anywhere (stan only has a meme instagram) and this and that before trashmouth’s cutting in smiling so huge stan can hear it in his voice like “can i play you a song” and stan says yeah and then holding roses by twin peaks is floating through out the dorm room and stan’s heart is beating so loud against his chest he can hear it
  • the problem is that winter break starts after that and everyone goes home for about a month and a half and WNG108 falls in the hands of a few local students and stan was too anxious and embarrassed to call in and ask about trashmouth like bill and ben wanted him to
  • so about a month goes by before the temp hosts announce that WNG108 is on snapchat now and to add them for behind the scenes shit and other fun stuff
  • stan misses this announcement because he hasn’t been listening to the radio much; he’s been working a lot over break
  • ben doesn’t miss the announcement, however, and immediately sends the info through their groupchat so they all add WNG108
  • a week before classes start, bill and ben move back into their dorm as do most of the students
  • stan just got off work two his phone blown up with screenshots from the WNG108 snapchat of a girl with red hair and green eyes who’s apparently bev (and ben and bill talking about ben asking her out somehow without being creepy like find her on tinder or something)
  • stan watches the snap; it’s mostly of bev and eddie who are hosting tonight but halfway through (which is what ben and bill blew his phone up about) eddie’s saying “stan, if you’re watching, this one’s for you” before playing pictures of you by the cure
  • their university story is filled with people talking about it; apparently over the past few weeks since stan and trashmouth’s first “encounter” (aka the drunken call) people have become … invested in the relationship ???
  • a couple of days before class starts, on a friday, stan’s phone is blown the fuck up once more because trashmouth has posted a video of himself at a local diner; friday i’m in love is playing over the sound of college kids and the snap reads “they’re playing our song stan the man”
  • curly black hair and freckles, glasses taped together, and he’s wearing a sherpa jacket over a hawaiian shirt
  • livewires snap and crack under stan’s skin sending electric currents pulsing through his veins holy shit holy shit holy shit trashmouth is perfect
  • students are posting stories to the university snapchat with him (including one girl enthusiastically yelling “stan come get your man!”) and #StanGetYourMan starts trending locally on twitter 
  • bill adds fuel to the fire by posting a video to the campus story saying “hi i’m bill i started this shit and i’m gonna end it” and a subsequent snap of him and ben en route to the diner
  • because bill and ben are incredibly good friends and know that stan would probably freeze if he had to walk into a crowded diner full of college kids WAITING ON HIS ARRIVAL to meet the love of his life
  • stan’s checking the campus snap story and twitter incessantly; there are videos of trashmouth and tweets about people waiting and ben has to clarify that he isn’t stan when people assume that he is since he’s in tow with bill
  • bill tells stan to get his ass over to the radio room and stan’s hands are shaking as he gets in the car; he drives slow as shit because of it
  • mike posts a selfie of himself, eddie, trashmouth, and bev sat at the diner waiting #StanGetYourMan
  • he’s the one to spill the beans on trashmouth’s name in an excited video posted zooming in on trashmouth looking towards the entrance of the diner with mike’s voice in the background saying “richie’s buggin the fuck out bro haha”
  • bill and ben get there (and yes ben’s awestruck by bev) and are basically greeted like kings and bill tells them that stan’s probably freaking out and that they’ve gotta meet tonight but on their own and mike immediately jumps into action, standing on a table like “WATCH OUT FOR THE WNG108 SNAP IN THE NEXT HOUR; STAN’S GONNA COME GET HIS MAN” and the energy in the room is WILD
  • richie goes with bill and the two walk across campus to the radio room
  • he tells the students hosting WNG108 that night to go home so he and bill sit in there, spinning tracks and shooting the shit
  • occasionally richie’s running his mouth in nervousness over the air and stan has to turn off the radio station before he has a heart attack
  • stan hasn’t gotten there yet and they sit talking for a while; bill’s telling him all about stan and richie’s bouncing his legs and walking around the room and tapping beats into the wall
  • bill gets a text. “here.” from stan and lets richie know he’s outtie and if richie hurts stan he’ll kick his ass and richie believes him
  • ten minutes later, a photo is posted onto the WNG108 snapchat. it’s a selfie, with richie holding the phone out, smiling so big his cheeks must hurt, holding up his and stan’s intertwined hands and stan’s mid eye roll.

a letter to cancer

You stir a music in my soul, and yet your tides bring tears in and out of my life. Your arms remind me of before I was born, when I was opened apart into the embrace of infinity. And yet sometimes I walk on eggshells, because your sensitivities
carve such a deep wound in your body.
And I don’t want to bring your hurts to the surface. You remind me of safety, and you built me a home inside your heart. I know why you hide away
and put up those defences. You’re so delicate the waves of the world would sweep you away, and yet you stand so firmly for those you love. You are a powerful guardian, of others, and the most resilient person I know. Sometimes I want to go with you, and explore that florid inner world
but you keep watch over that too, because you know the pain of people will only turn that world black and grey

____________


Tom’s knuckles lightly tapped the door to your apartment with contained joy. He hadn’t been home for almost eight hours, since he had spent the day in the city with his family, and it was already too much time apart from you. He hated to be cliche but in all honesty, he wanted to spend every second of his days with you. 

He was a little disappointed when he hadn’t heard the sound of your feet padding across the floor to welcome him home. Another knock against the door was greeted with another round of silence. Tom finally decided to let himself in with the key you’d given him.

He peeked his head around the corner to see if you were possibly in the kitchen. The kitchen turned up empty, leaving Tom’s heart to sink a little further in his chest.

“Y/N, love? I’m back!” He raised his voice loud enough just in case you were in the shower. He wandered through the kitchen into the hallway where your bedroom was.

Tom’s brow scrunched down in confusion when he heard soft music playing through the hallway. It was very faint but from what Tom could tell, it held a melancholy tune that was starting to grip him.

And I am alone, so don’t speak

I find war, and I find peace

I find no heat, no love in me

He instantly knew what the sad music meant despite how you had never told him about these days you had. These days that would sneak up on you like the clouds sneak up over a city, ready to rain down their troubles onto the citizens below. What pained him was to know that this kind of lonely day had come up on you when he had gone out with his family, leaving you to brew in your anxious thoughts on your own.

He gently pushed your bedroom door back. You were laying in bed with your laptop paused on a Netflix original that hadn’t done its job to distract you from the worries trying to cloud your mind. The music had been playing in place of the movie. You had figured that if you couldn’t avoid the worries, you might as well face them. You shot up instantly from your side when you saw Tom standing in the doorway behind the screen of your laptop.

You cleared your throat. “Hey Tom. .” You cringed at how your voice had cracked from such a short sentence. His Adam’s apple shot up before settling back in the center of his throat as he felt his own worry for you double.

“How are you doing?” He asked quietly. He leaned his shoulder against the doorframe with his hands shoved into his pockets. Guilt was washing over him about having gone out to enjoy the wonders of the city with his family while you had been holed up at home.

You pulled a weak smile out. “I’m okay.”

And my body’s weak

Feel my heart giving up on me

I’m worried it might just be

And my body’s weak

Tom sighed and pushed off the doorframe. You blinked at him since he didn’t say anything, instead crossing the room in four steps before he crashed onto the bed next to you. “You don’t have to tell me darling, but I know that was a lie.”

He closed your laptop before moving it to the table beside your bed. Tom could see the thoughts swirling in the irises of your eyes before you had even said anything. You bit your lip and lowered your gaze onto your lap as you sat with your legs crossed beneath you. He scooted himself so close to you that you were sat between his legs and kicked his shoes off. He scooped you into his embrace before they clambered to the floor.

“I’m here.” Tom whispered. His fingers, as rough and calloused as they may be, were tracing the softest and most delicate circles on one of your shoulder blades while his other hand was holding you close to his chest. You finally let your guard down so that you could sink into his chest.

Feel my lungs giving up on me

I’m worried it might just be

Something my soul needs

The music still played in the background, but the steady breaths leaving Tom combined with the gentle rise and fall of his chest was all you needed. Somehow he knew of your anxieties, your fears, your overwhelming worries, and your underwhelming solutions, and you couldn’t have been more grateful for a man like Tom who was willing to search for these pieces of your identity, of who you are. You bit your lip and took in a long breath through your nose.

Tom’s legs wrapped around you in a criss-cross pattern as you had your legs beneath you. You felt cozy and comforted to have him holding you close.

And I see war on the screen,

And it is cruel and unclean,

But I still worry more about you,” Tom quietly sang to you. You could feel his lips kiss the top of your hair before he rested his chin there. Another few verses came along with the two of you still embracing like this, caving in on one another.

Tom was worried that maybe this wasn’t working. He knew he wasn’t the best at handling the bad thoughts when he had them, but he sure as hell wasn’t going to let you suffer through yours without him battling them down when he could. Tom pulled back a bit to glance at your face to see if you were alright.

You looked up at him with a smile that was much brighter than the one you had tried to pass off earlier. He let out a breath he had unintentionally been holding and smiled with a small amount of relief.

You managed to pull the both of you down so you were laying in his embrace still. His legs were also still wrapped around you. A thought flitted through his mind.

“If I were a koala, you would be my favorite tree Y/N.” He mumbled. You scrunched your eyebrows and your nose while a giggle left your lips.

His eyes shot open wide while a rosy blush creeped into his cheeks.“Sorry! That was so stupid, jeez Tom-”

You laughed again. “No no, it was funny. And cute. I’m honored.” You bit your lip and looked him in the eyes.

A lazy smile spread across his face. He leaned forward to kiss the apples of your cheeks and the tip of your nose before reaching your lips. The warm and buttery-smooth kiss that Tom gave you was the one to help the knot in your stomach loosen and the battle between your brain and your soul come to rest. When he pulled back, he let his face nuzzle into your neck. A soft kiss was placed on your neck which made your mind feel even further at ease.

“I love you darling.” He paused. “And I know it may be hard to talk about your inner battles, but if or when you do feel ready, I am here. You don’t have to face them alone. I hope you know that I’ll always be fighting them with you, for you.” You felt his eyelashes flutter against the sensitive skin of your neck. A shiver followed down your spine while goosebumps rose at the realization that you had struck gold in loving Tom.

Something my soul needs

Is you, lying next to me

And it’s you, lying next to me

The song ended but the embrace didn’t. Tom were still held you close, with your fingers running through his curly mahogany-brown hair after he had fallen asleep. The only thing stuck on your mind now was the soft waves of love for him radiating through your heart and soul. He had unknowingly been the cure to the inexplicable anxieties you were plagued with that day. You saved the memory of him in this moment for when you would need it on another one of those days.

There is no element in which language resembles music more than in the punctuation marks. The comma and the period correspond to the half-cadence and the authentic cadence. Exclamation points are like silent cymbal clashes, question marks like musical upbeats…

Haunted by the music of your soul - by Dogman707

This is a re-edit of a earlier double exposure “Lost in my soul”. After hearing Gregg Allman’s “ My Only True Friend”. There is a line from the song “ I hope you are haunted by the music of my soul.” I thought that line could be a picture. Since, the light in the door reminds me of a human image and the soul is usually represented as light. I thought I would go a little darker with the photo. I wanted to convey that imagery. One of the images is from the Crystal Shrine Grotto located in Memorial Park cemetery. The image in the door is from a large wooded urban park. Hopefully, I succeeded in doing this.
