    Heaven In The Face Of My Little Girl

    It's one of the few ways

    that I have to escape from this broken reality. All the fake people, and everything else that isn't right with me just goes away when I have my headphones in.

    Music heals the soul.

    There's never a song that you can't relate what you're going through to. Right now I am in love with sound of the violin. The sound is so orgasmic. I swear the man I marry is either 1) going to already know how to play the violin or 2) will be taught how to play it. Heal my...

    Humans I hate them I want to kill them all

    Everyone has a way to escape from things.

    I use music(drawing and writing to but in focusing on music) to escape daily. Music is my life I don't think I can live without It.I think if I didn't listen to music I would be ruined. Music helps me in so many ways and helps me heal my emotional wounds that are still slowly...

    The Only Companion

    Music is my only companion thru the loneliness, the darkest moment. It's the one thing that makes me sane. I'm amazed of how much it impacts my life. I know by listening music that I'm not alone, knowing that there are people out there who share the same feeling. I listen to...

    Where words fail music speaks.

    It speaks of the pain of the sorrow. Of the lost, of the life we live. It shares emotions it's a way to connect, to understand what others feel. Where words fail, music speaks. It tells the truth whether you want it to or you don't. Music shares the souls of those we're around...

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie...

    I escape into my world, my freedom, my passion when I listen to music.  It is an alternate sense of self one that is portrayed by someone else.  It helps to know you are not alone and music does that either fictitiously and realistically.
