I write a poem for all of my songs. Hopefully it helps give a little meaning to its purpose!

One song

It just takes one song to move myself to another world,
And my heart beats faster.

One song

Makes me feel I can conquer every problem-
All the world's disasters.

One song

It makes my heart break and mend itself over
And over
And over
Until it's a whole new heart
With a whole new stature.

One song

I hear joy. I hear peace.
But it's all for myself.
It doesn't even matter.

One song
I don't know how to share what I hear.

One song
So what I hear disappears.

One song
Turns to none, so I fear,

And try to find another one song
That I can hold dear.

One song,
But it all happens again.

One song
Breaks a heart that's already bee mended

By the first one song,
And the heart's offended.

Now there's two songs;
The one song has ended.

Two songs 
Clash and pretend that

Two songs
Are unique but they can't be - instead

Two songs
Affected the same heart.

With two songs
The first's uniqueness is upended.

Two songs
Split the heart
Half as powerful
As the start,

So I need another two one songs
To double the power.
But the result is the same, 
And the dilution gets stronger.

And what was difficult to share initially
Becomes impossible because my heart isn't free.
It's torn into a million pieces
Each tied to a one song, each song with the thesis

That I want to share my songs to everyone
Because of how it broke and mended my heart.
But too many songs made my heart hardened
Until the songs hardly affect a heart - just scar it.

By the time I learn how to share any song
They'll all be gone
Just the heart's shadow of what it longed to share.

So I watch others to see if my one song was a myth.
They all have one songs creating the semblance of mended heart.
So my one song could only make another heart split
Diluting their one song to half as powerful as its start.
