I let the melodic beat play till it nearly fades into the background, It’s presence still there, but only annoyingly so. The song, now noise in my head, doesn’t leave until I give in to listening to the familiar rhythm.
I feel trapped in its entrancing haze until the song stops and I’m free of its repetitive notes. And when the same song plays in my head a different day,
I beat the beat with another song to rid myself of musical snare, Hoping the new song doesn’t get stuck in my head instead.
