i love music
but if asked to touch music, what would you do?
i would run my fingers down the spine of a dancer
caress the strings of my guitar
put my ear to the floor as the drummer beats real hard
i would touch the embodiments of music
for it is not real until it is embodied
can we touch everything we feel?
can we feel everything we touch?
will i reach the end of the reel
before i even have lunch?
are feelings real?
is anything real?
one of my teachers once told me
that we never truly touch anything
we are so electric
that we repel electricity
i guess thats why i could never feel you hold me
the illusion exists
but doesnt make it past your fingertips
to touch life
we must allow ourselves
for we are life
and it doesnt get much better than this
touching tangible things
dancing dervishes i divulge
in illusion i indulge
finally feeling free
making my life more me
rarely reaching, always aware
caressing the cosmos
building bridges between
paving the way thru which we will all pass
barely breaching the core
creating tools to feel more
i dont know if we can truly touch anything
because when i reach out, i constantly feel empty
but my spirit feels everything
can feel you breathing
and the feelings that give this life meaning
close my eyes and see thru anything
feeling your pulse with my hips
converging with your lips
life is an ebb and flow
teetering between emptiness and over-flow
enjoy the bliss
dive into the abyss
just let go
don’t try to touch everything
with your hands
for some things can not be physically felt
count the money, release the band
how do you feel?
like im not real
