The music shut off

The battery died

Mid gesture I stopped and my hand fell to my side

Once animated jolts of vibrating music now fell still and dripped down the walls into a white silent noise

I’d been moving and the songs had been with me

But now

Just me 

Just me now, and my breath and a bouquet of thoughts loosely bundled

Oh what a warm gleam when everything stops and the mind unwinds
