Are we human or are we dancer?

Sometimes I listen to songs that touches me so deep and makes me so happy that it can feel like a crush! Yeah, it sounds strange, but that’s the way I’m built. Sometimes songs hit me so hard!

I have a crush right now!

The Killers are out with a new single now, called Human. I heard it for the first time some weeks ago. I thought it was good, but I only heard it a few times. Then it faded away and I started listening to something else.

Last week I saw the Killers preforming at the European Music Awards and they had a kick-ass light show. And they played of course Human. i was breathtaken by the light-show. On friday at work, I searched up the  video from the EMA on youtube and listened to it over and over again. While I worked of course. I think I must’ve played it 20 times at least.

By now, I know almost all the lyrics by heart. There are some lyrics added to the EMA version, that’s not on the single version though. It’s not been a goal to learn the lyrics. That’s something I used to have as a goal when i was 15 ;) But I always sing a long when I listen to music and some lyrics are easier to learn that others. And when you listen to the same song 5 times in a row, it’s easier to learn it too. haha.

In this Human-haze, I managed to write a poem. Another way to let my creativity out. I haven’t written anything in ages and it felt good to get something down on paper.

Music always inspire me to write poems. So most of my poems has a relationship to music, somehow. It can be a subject, a mood or just a single word. In the past, Alanis Morisette, has influenced my poems a lot.  This time it was Human and the second last word in the song, brittle. The way he sung that word, it hit me in some way. I needed to find out the meaing to this lovely-sounding word.

Brittle means easy shattered / broken. Not long after i learned that, my head was spinning and not long after I had a poem ready. Beautiful, sad but simple was Chantie’s review of it :)

My Brittle Heart

I’m aching
on the edge of breaking
my brittle heart

cut the strings
your pulling stings
my brittle heart

say goodbye
just let me go
my brittle heart

Now I’m gonna take a few mins to figure out how I’m gonna use this creative brain today. I’m still in my pj and living out the lazy-sunday concept ;)

I’ll be back, soon!
