My Writing

After the Music Stops

What happens after the music stops and the rain stops singing
What happens after the music stops and the heart stops beating
What happens after the music stops and the brain stops being

Does the wind fall silent
Does the soul turn into dust
Does the ego let go

What happens after the music stops

Am I filled with peace
Am I filled with joy
Am I filled with quiet

Tell me, what happens after the music stops

Do I start living?
