Quarantine by Taal Seth

shh.
calm the heartbeat
dissipate the music
quieten the buzzing
inside of me
challenge the loudness
that hammers recklessly and ruthlessly
bring me ecstasy
without disturbing my sanity
fire away
with your beauty
without making my blood
churn with poetry

shh.

calm my heartbeat.
teach me peace
like the comfort of your songs
teach me tranquility
like the blanket of stars we’ve worn

dissipate the music.
teach me to love the static sound of the city
without hating
the hymns of the bible
teach me to praise serenity
without learning to hate
the constant flooding of irrationality inside me

shh.
quieten the buzzing inside me.
quieten the buzzing inside me.
