The Only Song

What does it mean when you listen to the same song time and time again?
In the same day.
On repeat.
Like fifteen times.
No, seriously.

What does it mean?
Is there something in the words,
that connects to your experience?
Is there something in the melody,
that resonates with the beat of your heart?

What is this stuckness?
This thirst for more?
This desire to listen
and again
and again.

Even though I can't tell you
the lyrics
or the meaning of the song.
I haven't actually listened
that well.

There's just something
in this song
that embraces
my DNA
and won't let go.

I can't explain.

So, I'll just keep listening.
Until, I've been taught
what I needed to know.
