Heavy Vynyl

Heavy Vynyl

Vynyl black as Jet
On Whitby cliffs 
The needle smoothly lifts
 

Then delicately 
touchces down like a 747... 
To create as sound that's crisp

Feel it's contours 
Rough yet smooth
Serenading your fingertips 

Head back 
Eyes closed
Vibrations born from needles kiss

Tranquil in this
Midnight hour
Cradelled in nostalgic bliss

Free me with your
Melodic power 
My worries are eclipsed

Syd, I like this write but have you ever been on a touchdown really smooth on a 747?😊😊😊 Just kidding.  Love, Terry Kay

That's a good point actually Terry. I might change that line lol. It was late when I wrote this one. Thanks for reading and leaving feedback. 

Take care - Syd xo

Syd, I was just kidding.  Please don't think I meant it as criticism. Love, Terry Kay

It's ok Terry I didn't lol. It did make me have a think about it though.

Thanks for reading. I appreciate all feedback and I can certainly take a joke. Definitely no hard feelings.

Leave it be, when I hear Metallica on Vinyl it's like ten 747s bombarding my brain.

​​​​​​Epic poem Syd, I loved every sound.

Cheers Gerard. I'm glad you could relate, especially with the 747 line. I've got to be honest...I never really thought of it in that concept. That line just rolled out of my brain.

Thanks for reading and leaving feed back.

Syd, as you might of thought I bloody love this. I love the depth of sound from LP's instead of digital. Does this mean your Darkside has arrived?
Great write mate

Thanks Nigel. Yes it certainly does, although I was at a friend's house at the weekend and he was showing me his box of rare Oasis singles on vynyl. The box was heavy. Hence heavy vynyl. It just stuck in my brain and I thought it would make a good poem.

Thanks for reading and leaving feed back.

My Dear Friend Syd,

The "old" vinyl discs so moved me
Bringing "new" feelings for the songs
Much stronger than today's discs
So I danced the whole night long

Love,
Larry xxx
