I walk into brick walls often, many admonish me to
look where I'm going.Blindness isn't

Even the blind can see.
We see through the scent of a cloud whispering from a far
away sky, through the touch of a breeze that's traveled around the world to
greet us.We see through the sounds of a
lonely piano where great passions are spilled forth to dance as a fire licks
the night air.
Mine is a hysterical blindness in that it keeps me from
seeing the moments mercifully buried, but I live in fear of what could possibly
be blacker than the horrors remaining unseen in my memory. Happiness is fleeting; I find myself living those moments as often as possible, while I scribble in the moon's light trying to recover what's been lost.

write in bloody ink, chasing my demons into the midnight.Or... am I the one pursued?It is in those hours that I look for
something tangible, anything to bind me to a world of realism, and not the
twisted turns of my mystical whirlstorms.When the ivory sings to me, its voice comes from the soul of another,
and as I strive to be heard, I am calmed by common expressions.The soothing touch of a human hand allows me
to toss my words about without fear of falling alone.
