Consumed By Music

I am consumed by music, and it seems I always have been. If I am not writing it during the day, I am harassed by it at night.

It is like a ball and chain attached to my ankle, but instead of a ball and chain, there is a very loud orchestra, and it's inside my head; it is always performing.

My life has become a sad shell, or perhaps it has always been this way. If I look into myself, beyond my music, I see only vast emptiness.

It used to bother me when I was younger, but now everything I do revolves around it.

And yet the music must be written, lest I be driven mad.
