There was the time I actually felt emotions
anger, happiness, sadness, horror
but then like a single note on a piano
indifference was the only emotion I played

like a needle stuck in a groove
repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat,
a phrase, a word, that single note
redundantly revisited again and again

until someone gave it a sharp slap
and shocked it back to the other
grooves on the pressed vinyl
the melody played until the end
a melancholy tune from way back when
about love, loss and feelings of pain.
