BEATS TO MY HEART.
Hips swivel side to side as the beats and rhythm of a sweat melody come to mind. I tune the radio and the sweet of a feminine musician cuts through the penetrable silence in the room. The tunes are bewitching, and I feel like I could break into a musical. Consequently, a little bit of tap dancing here and there and a bit of clicking of the fingers. My head bops from left to right then suddenly I move to the center of the colossal room and twirl. Furthermore, my lacy frock does the honors of creating the effect. I forget what I am doing, and the music takes me away. What an exciting feeling!
I pop in a jazz disc into its player and put on a cheek to cheek smile. Madonna’s “Material Girl” comes on and I can not help but bust a move. An upbeat tune deserved all the energy it gave. I worked with my arms and my two left feet. Consequently, this song took me back to the old times. No smartphones or laptops but just telephones that looked funny and chunky. Where beauty was a beautiful big frock, socks with lace, a high pony, and a simple or no-makeup look. Hence, I felt a release of dopamine.
The next song played. Whitney Houston takes my soul out and takes it on a beautiful tour. The song silences the noise around and brings everything to a standstill. Time is slow but inviting. Not a care in the world. I sing the song word for word.
The king of pop comes on. Michael’s song engulfs the air. The music soared in the air like an eagle at full flight and seeped through my soul. Entered my veins and took over as a drug. I felt high on some substance. As Michael Jackson sang “nobody cares about us”, I felt like I was in the struggle for equality. Moreover, I felt my body matching through the streets in protest for fairness.
As I retired to bed that night, I did not feel alone. I felt one with the music. In fact, music was my best friend. It was there and I was too and flowed in the body as rapidly as lightning taking over like molly in a first-timer. Indeed, that was a beautiful feeling and I would let it take me to the depths of the sea.
