Piano notes

wink at me.

 They

 contemplate.

 They

desire.

 They

wander,

 they sparkle,

they clash.

Night falls.

 They glisten like a firecracker,

then rise like fire.

I wish I were music.

I wish I could only rise and cause joy

and sink and cause more beauty.

The piano notes tell a hundred stories.

It breathes on the scale.

It never grows tired of playing under the pressure of the musician’s hands.

I wish I were music. Music is the ocean, I am the sand.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
