When you put on headphones and sing to yourself

You put everything into perspective
When you put on headphones and sing to yourself
Like a lonely person
Like the person you know you are
And you can barley hear yourself
But you can't hear anybody else
And that's all
there is to say

Cover my ears with ignorance,
pummel my head with bliss.

I pulsate
Fixate
On the nodding beat
Thats taking over your mind.
I feel you hanging on
To the last note that fades
Away from my grip.

I create
Animate
The vibrant scene behind your closed eyes
The million goosebumps
Riding up your arms
The silent shiver
Down your spine.

I emanate
Accentuate
The singing of strings
As your hesitant voice joins
In a burst of exuberance.

And now you pull me down hurriedly
Glancing back at the weird looks around you.
From my vantage point around your neck
I chuckle internally
And welcome the peaceful silence.

Slipping in my ear-buds,
To get my daily dose
Feeling so close to the sound that doesn't affect me
Flying over clouds only my mind can see
Bass wobbles, no duds

I'm addicted to the ripples,
My head lulls with a vengeance
"don't bother him man, hes gone"
Passers-by call to  me
So drunk on sound...
My cranium has better acoustics then the great theater
Rhythm's projected with shock waves and powered by hand grenades
I am a supernova charged by AUX
Watch anxiety writhe and burn in my wake

Once I put on those  headphones ,
My surrounding becomes non-existent.

so thanks headphones, you getting me through stuff.

you do a good job of blocking things out.
you keep good things going through my head.
you block out the voices all around.
so thanks headphones, you getting me through stuff.

I can only experience tranquillity when my headphones are on.

You, the bulky headphones freak.

So you want to speak music,
You, the bulky headphones freak.

So you want to act dramatic,
You, the shy impish freak.

So you want to be all punk,
You, the neon pink adorned freak.

So you want to be the freak,
You, the coward of the class?

My headphones
Are wonderful

I can tune out
The people
That live here

My headphones
Are usually on

They let people know
I don't want to talk

The people
That live here
Really have nothing
To say

That matters much to me

Thank goodness for headphones
