A New Melody

A new melody is becoming everything


The movies and TV shows I’ve always had memorized

have not been seen in recent time


And the songs I grew up with

are being replaced


Not coldly or indifferently

just naturally


All because I feel something new

and it requires a new song to resonate with


Still indie

still emo

with the same punk rock cover


But with a whole new beauty

that takes me to be

swallowed by this different kind of melody
