Heart of Stone.

The inspiration behind this song shall remain nameless.

Staring at the dust on the piano, my back ached. My head pounded. I was growing frustrated with myself. Then, I imagined it: darkness like a veil masking a set of piercing blue eyes.

My hands made their way to the keys. My voice went where my soul led, eventually finding its own path. Still envisioning those eyes, I mourned for the reality looming behind them. They would never tell their painful memories. Nothing could break through their walls. They say it takes open eyes and ears with a willing heart to accept love. The keeper of those eyes hadn’t known love for ages. Seven to be exact.
