Me, Myself and Music (In This for Life!)

In light of the musical talent we’ve lost recently (known and unknown), I feel I have to dedicated this poem to those who gave their lives to giving us music. Thank you. RIP.x

We’re in love, you and I.
I can tell by the way you make me feel.

You encompass every part of me,
Almost knowing, predicting my mood.

You soothe the parts of me that are out of line,
And go to work on my soul like the god that you are.

Alone, we are a force.
Beating, running, jumping, swaying.
You move me beyond recognition.
You move me beyond thought.
You move me.

When you touch me,
The emotion stays with me.
I never forget when.
I never forget where.
Engraved in my memory.

I love that when I’m feeling silly,
You’re silly with me.
When I’m feeling love, you love with me.
When my heart aches,
You understand.

When I hate,
Like a supportive friend,
You hate right along with me.

But not completely submissive;
You’re strong,
You hold yours.
You take control when need be.
Oh yes, you take control.

Pulling me out of the deep,
Bringing me into light.
Damn, you hit hard,
But mean well.
Always.

You are slightly twisted though.
Turning a perfect day into living hell.
I cross that love line at this point,
As I do hate that side of you.

Regardless, you’re there.

I need you there.
I want you there.
I love you there.

And no matter where I go,
What I’m doing,
How I’m feeling,
Or who I’m with,
It will always be us.

It will always be You and Me, Music.
I’m in this for life!

I Say Osei Blog

Once in a while the world produces something that has all of us staring opened mouthed in amazement.
Once in a while, this thing is something we may have already been aware of and once in a while it’s something very close to home.

The art of knowing, loving and analysing music and it’s components is a skill. A skill that comes to so very few of us yet seems to come so easy to my brother.

Don’t just read – Listen! @ Book Slam

Posted on December 9, 2009. Filed under: Articles, Shines | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

You may or may not have heard of a literary event called Book Slam that takes place on the last Thursday of every month (The Tabernacle, Powis Square, London, W11 2AY).  This is quite simply where the world of literary art comes to life.

Seeing and hearing from the mouths of top authors and guests such as heavy hitters David Simon (creator of The Wire), Nick Hornby (High Fedility, About a Boy, Fever Pitch, Juliet, Naked) and Dave Eggers (What is the What, You Shall Know Our Velocity, The Wild Things) and showcasing the extreme talents of up and coming authors and poets alike. With live music, great people and an oozing of creative talent under one roof; I dare you not to have fun in this cool melodic atmosphere.

Check it out for yourself:
