Lost In The Music

I slip on my headphones, adjust them, press play,
And suddenly it’s a concert just for me.
Shuffle to the song that’s been in my head all day,
Then start singing just slightly off-key.

It’s like the music is streaming directly to my brain,
Giving me a sudden urge to dance.
So I surrender to the movements I can no longer contain,
Swaying and shimmying in a spastic performance.

The melody has full hold of my body, like I’m just
Another instrument in this rhapsody.
And then the symphony’s over, swept away like stardust:
I realize it after a few seconds, absentmindedly.

I slip my headphones back off and turn around to see,
That everyone in the room had been staring at me.

This has happened to all of us at some point, I'm sure. I seem to have these moments more often then not.

Great writing! Thanks for telling the story to which too many of us are too embarrassed to admit. I laughed out loud. :D
