Poetry

Playlist on Repeat

Certain songs
Press on you heart
With invisible weight
And leave marks
Of the person
your memories conjure.

You hold your chest
Hoping the pain will leave
If you relax
And breathe right
The song stops
Yet your heart continues to ache.

Worry not,
The ache will turn into throbs
The throbs will calm down and fade
When finally you get to steady yourself
That’s when the next song
Starts to play.
