Headphones (8/11/12)

This was actually an assignment from my first year of English at university, that involved writing a poem in the Anglo-Saxon format. It’s short and simple but was actually very difficult to write, especially as unlike the original writers of Anglo-Saxon poetry, I’m using Modern English!

Put my headphones on once more     my head is so full
Of new noises     and voices are yelling
The song is bursting with bars     and burning with phrases
I’m tripping over trills     and I was tricked by riffs
My mind is spinning    it’s spilling the words
They move to my mouth     and dismount from my tongue.
