I find myself back to one of my favorite albums. The Gold Experience. There were many laughs during the first track like never before. Endorphinmachine was actually enjoyable, screaming and all. Shh was beautiful as its always been and its presence gives myself reassurance that he’s still the person I always thought he was as he continues to amaze me. The Most Beautiful Girl in the World was in need of a title change because I felt he fit the description, but as the most beautiful man inside & out that I’ve “known.” I sung along with Dolphin in a duet, feeling as if it meant the world to me. In response to the haters on my thread, I say that the song rings very true. Perhaps more true than it ever has. Many people might be singing “Eye Hate U” all over Prince’s world to its creator, but that’s not the reason why it had my heart pounding. So much that I had to pause before going onto the last song.
Seems like my deepest wish is to always listen through the album without interruption because the overall experience is ruined for me if that happens. It happens again today, unfortunately. My roommate’s friend came in just when he was singing for the last time. I watched the video to get something back. To feel what I had felt b4 so long ago. The feelings were strong, but not the same. But the experience is always changing with changing perceptions.
I wanted to close their thread with a poem I wrote describing “A Gold Experience” I had with my soul tattoo, a song that had seem me through a lot, which I declared early on as my favorite song written by the artist this blog is dedicated 2. I wrote this poem when I listened through the song one final time before putting it (and its home/album) aside for another month or two.
Before I do so, I’d like to say this:
- Those who read this who are skeptical about what I see and feel, I apologize if this makes you more uneasy towards me. But this is what i saw and its one of the most incredible feelings I’ve felt in a long time
- Prince, if you happen across this particular entry, I apologize if this comes off fanatical or downright insane. I don’t regret this Gold Experience because this beautiful song you wrote made me feel happier than I had in a long time. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing this song that allows me to experience this kind of happiness.
