Poetry / Marinate In The Melodies

I marinated in the melodies

A symphony of violins

Another world within a train

That exists with my eyes half shut

Cracked to make sure I don’t miss my stop

I skip back tracks to keep the violin soaring

To make the world stop shaking

I retreat into classical music

A genre I haven’t immersed myself in

Not in the last three years

I find this song reassuring

When the anxiety builds

A deafening whispering

I have to drown out
