He sat by the window as the sunlight beamed on the back of his head. He could feel the warmth of the sun but inside he felt so cold. A kind of loneliness he had never experienced before but it was so soothing. His fingers moved across the piano keyboard like snakes slithering through the woods. He was in a moment of serenity as he thought to himself, “I want to be alone, all alone, like the birds when they fly south for the winter.

His fingers so fluid and sharp at every stroke as she watched him. “This world is a sick and twisted place and I’m not going to give up on you” she screamed. “Well you can try but I will kill you with my music.” he replied as he continued to play. As the endorphins shot throughout his body his anxiety started to fade. He thought to himself, “Keep busy and do not let women deter you from your goals and dreams of becoming something great”.
