Noise

It’s beautiful

The sweat and smiles

all blurring together

My eardrums are ringing so loud

I can barely hear the music

You can feel the happiness in the air

Everyone together

Yet so apart

The five people on stage

Are the only reason we are there

their voices floating  through the crowd

The pure psychedelic rush

That comes with the things you love

Moments like these

Where you wouldn’t ask for anything else

But to stay even a second longer

Or to be able to feel like that

All the time

And it’s so crazy

How noise

Can trigger such a reaction
