Pounds like loving ***
But without the sudden sweet release
All there is left is ivory keys
I put my
in the fridge.
Or is it just me?
I tap away at the keys
Not a care in the world
Unable to realize what those notes mean to you
I tap away at my keys
Looking for a sense of accomplishment
Looking for the perfect story to be told
I stare at the keys
Not knowing what to do
Pressing but not quite knowing where to head to next
We tap away at keys
Whether be piano or screen
We never tap in time

The space in me
was no longer hollow
and soon began
His music filled my soul like air fills my lungs.
The light will be shining
I'm supposed to be the star,
and yet I'm so
The keys will be right there,
waiting for me.
Black and white
silky, ivory keys.
I tell myself.
And yet I know that
Tonight is my piano concert. Man, am I nervous!
and I wait,
and I wait.
Just so that I can come home,
to sit down
To touch those silky
black and white keys,
and to play the music
that comes out a piece of me.
All day I sit through school, work, homework...
All day, I just wait and think to myself about what a reward I will get when I get home. I always know that my beautiful piano will always be there, waiting for me, and that is my reward.
Sinking moods, forever stuck in interlude
Staring at grey skies like it's a reflection of the mind
Bearing no fruits of labour; a slave to life's servitude
Constant excessive sighs & an inability to unwind
Only light in one's eyes, is a reflection off one's phone
No life in one's voice, only a overcast monotone
Vessel's surrounded, but one's soul is alone
Drained from weeping & can't even groan
Liquor & ******; distractions from the consciousness
To put the anguish at ease, digressions is a necessity
Shut the door on itself & swallow the keys
Endlessly stuck in a state of cecity
i locked up
my heart in a
c h e s t
d e e p
beneath the earth
h o p e
and droken dreams
searching for the
k e y
one who holds it
d e a r l y
Tap tap tap...
Break out the apple and cut in half
Tap tap tap...
One ee and ah
Two ee and ah
Rough as nails you see
Trust me it doesn't get easier
Practice is essential
Resilience of the mind and soul is helpful
Then wake up and what do you see
A great big world and you have the key
