Poetic Music Notes

If poems can be bent into songs

and songs can be broken down to lyrical poems,
does that make the poet a songstress
or the singer a poet?
‘Cuz these poems flow from a heart
that sings with the birds and soars over the world
every time you’re near.
So, let me sing a poem softly in your ear.
Or rather, whisper a song…
Floating notes amidst thin air.
Let me break down a few lines,
dedicated to you.
Let if flow however you want…
This song’s measured by your moves.
Amplify the sound with your mood.
Stroke these strings
Like you’re singing melodic blues.
Rub my keys ’til they’re smooth…
Ebony and Ivory all up in the groove.
Slide down my bell
Damn
‘Til you hear trumpet tunes. 
Intensify the bass,
I wanna feel your heart 
thump.
The orchestra lights up
You’re crescendos start
 to JUmP..
Gimme some hits 
On that sexy tom drum.
Oooh this percussion’s gonna
make all your rivers run.
And the background,
with its organized noise..
Sends you through a chaos of 
unfamiliar melodies,
solidified as one voice. 
Let the crowd fade to darkness.
Close your eyes…
Come get this sweet, musical lullaby.
The saxophone
makes you undress
while I….
I lay you down and 
and
caress
every string
every chord
every note.
Add a li’l reverb.
Now, turn on the echo.
Gimme a clearer sound
Turn up the treble.
A music junkie…
I don’t mind
adjusting levels.

If poems can be bent into songs

and songs can be broken down to lyrical poems,
does that make the poet a songstress
or the singer a poet? 
Yeah.
It does.
‘Cuz I know how to celebrate
Love.
and I can break it down 
in the bedroom
with a nice joint
and tunes that range from
67-to the new 2’s.
Yeah.
2017
and this young one’s
got a game that’s lyrically mean.
But, these lyrics I’ll have to keep clean,
‘cuz I’m a poet…
when it’s all said and done.

If poems can be bent into songs

and songs can be broken down to lyrical poems,
does that make the poet a songstress
or the singer a poet?
I guess ……….I Am One………
