"Nah. You didn’t fall to your death. I jumped after you with a parachute." August 24th

The sound of piano,
Fills up the inside,
Of a soul,
Long forgotten at sea.

Waves do not crash,
Upon the bow.
The wind does not
Puff the sails.

The same two keys,
Play for eternity,
The same old tune,
Monotonous it goes.

So many added chords,
Lost to frustration,
Eerie and silent,
Yet powerful and bold.

There once stood a man,
Challenging the wind,
Daring the clouds,

The sound of piano
Filled him up,
And sucked him dry,
But did not leave him,
On the shore,
To die.

I was listening to a friend of mine play the piano in our commons room. He was really frustrated that he couldn't write what was playing in his head.

Fall in love or fall in hate; Get inspired or be depressed; Ace a test or flunk a class; Make babies or make art; Speak the truth or lie and cheat; Dance on tables or sit in the corner; Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Breathe. And enjoy the ride...

really describes the emotion, i love it :)
