Yin

yin

I am yin
I am the empty space longing to be filled
I am looking for energy, different and excruciating
I am the silence between the notes
I am the gap between your heartbeats
I am the emptiness between breathing out and breathing in
I am the blank canvas behind every masterpiece
and the hush around a wave before it crashes
I am the place you lived in before you were born
and the place you go when you leave your bones behind
I am the answer to the question you forgot to ask
I am what becomes of hunger when it’s fed
and dreams when they are abandoned
I am the overwhelming part of every atom
I am the thought that cannot be expressed
I am your imaginary friend
Unless your imaginary friend is yang
I am not yang

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
