Soothing the savagery of life outside these walls
Escape, is a world unknown to those who cannot read or will not see,
Melody is inked on pages that speak sweetly
passion writes furiously in bold black tones , never to be denied,
The tempo changes, the notes rain down hard and fast, a storm within a storm , living and breathing, creating a new life , where there was none.
Hear the colors , taste the sound , this elixir fills my soul.
Delve into the downy softness ,
So warm and welcoming,
So familiar ,
A refrain that wraps itself around you , and heals you
Branches entwined, keeping you safe,
your limbs forever flowing , free
My fingers trace the silhouette of the ghosts who sat with me,
Who whispered secrets , in foreign tongues, that only I was told .
It saved me and made me whole, or was the requiem that slowly drove me insane
no one will ever know , as I sit down to play again.
