A Tribute to Music

I slip my headphones over my ears
gold and white
a gift for my 12th birthday
never have I recieved something
that I love so completely
the music takes me to a different world
a parallel time where nothing matters
and everyone and everything I've ever lost is there
every lover, who I treasured over myself
every friend, lost by selfish actions
and my will to exist, which lay in the music itself
my heart strings pluck along to the melody
my lungs  breath in with the rhythm
and I am myself again
not the broken thing that society sees
not the person everyone expects me to be
but the girl who just wants to be real among the fakers
so much is ignored that it becomes a simple thing
but it is the simple thigs in life that are the most beautiful
we have only to pay attention to them.
