"All the good music has already been written
by people with wigs and stuff." -- Frank Zappa
My AntidoteMusic fills the airMy Antidote by Victorian-Dandy
Tears I’d been denying
Finally fall freely
While a unseen hand caresses my cheek
And a voice no-one can hear whispers
"Let the music take you”
Like times before I drop to my knees
Closing my eyes
With a faint smile upon my lips
I let myself drown
As the music washes over me
Each and every bar, every note
Stripping away the pains and the fears
That had brought me to this point
Demons that once commanded my every move
And sort only my demise
Now curse and flee
As both Elgar and Tchaikovsky
Mend my heart and soothe my soul
Their own passion and emotions
Mingling with my own
Until I am at one with the music
Rebuilt and renewed
I fall into a sleep
That I rarely know
My dreams no longer filled with doubts
Of who or what I am
I am at peace with myself
Elgar commands my heart
Tchaikovsky my soul
Together with their music
Is what helps to make me whole
Their music weaves throughout
Holding me together when all else has failed
I may b
* D'Eon et Saint-George** D'Eon et Saint-George by DarkSaxeBleu
''MYLA! ... BURN THIS!!!
It's a devilish note, some twit scrawled a ditty
to vulgarly gloat at my glory long past!''
... And as we all must, without a peep - soon
troublesome lady fell soundly asleep ...
Myla glanced at the verse, prepared for the worst -
it read more as an ode than vexing a curse:
Gentlemen, Ladies, the rest of the crew!
Bend ear to a fable that but a few knew,
shiver and shake as we deliver a wondrous tale
of two noble Lords who for immortal awards
have plucked dissonant chords; how spy
and musician have crossed their cold swords.
Chevalier de Saint-George in an intricate pose
with gaze of the lion from head to the toes
thus froze the kibitzers, gapers, all those
who sneaked to the Challenge and sat in front rows.
Blood thirsty the eyes then turned to the skirt
- oh! Pardon me tongue, I am such a flirt -
in speckless all black - a proper dress~shirt -
Chevalier D'Eon dug heels deep in the dirt.
None of these warriors gave in not an inch
in friendly a gam
music tells the march of timerelentless and eternalmusic tells the march of time by PwnedByPineapple
bittersweet and wonderful
revealing all things
for those who can truly feel
the depth and breadth of human emotion/error
is found in the sound the march
of song of time
the hands of the clock move with the rhythm of the melody
even when everything is quiet
gentle and momentary
sweet and terrible
the clock marks the pulse of the world's song
and music tells the march of time

when names held little powers,
and the grandiose nature of things

The world is alive in another concerto,

to celebrate the brevity of life
and fie!, shew away those laments
of yesterdays repeated, worn out
with constant use.
