Music as Distraction

I’m sitting here begging to write
but I keep listening to this damn poetry
by Alicia Keys
music is getting in the way of productivity
yet it always seems to comfort me
not the celebrity
but I really like the way it beats
a steady drum roll, heavy bass line
thanks to you my troubles free
and I’m floating into subtlety
emotionally free
I wanna rock with you
in the new york streets
sharing stolen moments until the distraction starts to trouble me
see loving the words and the music is a difficulty
because I’m lost in some one else’s notes
but I want you to hear a part of me
that exists most essentially
good thing there was never truly originality
I’m alive in these words
but the world’s music lives in me.
