    A song on the radio
    Can bring back the past
    With fierce immediacy
    A picture can have the same effect

    Listening to the same song on repeat
    Can subconsciously attach it
    To a person or a moment

    And its funny how that song
    Can appear happy at one time
    And depressing at another

    Music tends to have a drowning effect
    The melodies can turn into memories
    And the memories into remorse

    People collect photos
    I do too
    But there’s nothing more organized in my life
    Than the playlists of songs
    I’ve saved over the years

    And time to time
    I bring them back
    Whenever I wish to escape
    Which I feel the need to do
    More and more
    As the days go by
