In honour of Mental Health Awareness Week, I thought I would share my poem ‘Gain’ again. It was published in the Artificial Womb zine.
The world is devoid of music –
every guitar riff blanked out,
every drum solo erased entirely.
Tuning in and out of stations;
searching for the slightest beat,
praying for the hint of a hook.
Dials spinning, volume at a hundred,
the stagnant silence is an abyss.
The speakers are a black hole,
draining the last drops of energy away.
The floor falls away without the bass,
without the solidity of a song.
I just want to hear your voice.
I just want to feel something.
