"we all carry these things inside that no one else can see. they hold us down like anchors and they drown us out at sea."
"i'm trying to figure out which parts of my personality are mine and which ones I created to please you"

As my fingers slide gracefully over the ivory,
All my pain fades away.
I am peaceful,
At one with the piano, my salvation.

As the beautiful music reaches my ear,
My thoughts cloud over.
I am alone,
Lost in the music, my creation.

As the song reaches its climax,
My soul lifts with joy.
I am amazed,
Filled with pride at what I can do.

As the notes get softer and the melody slower,
My pain returns.
I am anxious.
Afraid of what is to come.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece when I was thinking about how I always feel when I play the piano. Playing the piano is a huge part of my life.
