Clarity

i breathe in, out

i let my fingers glide over the keys

and my heart feels again

at peace

 

i drift off into another world

another world where i am clear

as clear as glass

no more fear

 

i let the music flow right through me

feeling, hearing, seeing

nothing but music

like a beautiful river streaming

 

for i am glass

see through, yet bashful

but one fall and i may shatter

so beautiful yet fragile

 

The music stops

and i am at peace

but then it starts again

another piece

 

this time i am a flower

blossoming in the warmth of spring

the melody of a nearby river

ting, ting

 

my heart smiles

and i am glad,

then in an instant

i am mad

 

the music changes

itself and i 

we become one

and i sigh

 

the music overtakes me

now everything is gone

and i feel the loneliness creep, my foe

for a small moment

i am selfish, wanting the song

 

but i have to stop, i know

i detach myself

and feel the coolness of silence

with the bitterness of snow
