Haunted Melody

The percussive sounds steamed though the speakers
The haunting melody taking me back
Back to a time that was not easily remembered
Characterized by pain and sorrow
It had taken a long time to forget
But now the memories streamed forth with such fervor
A remembrance of which could be my downfall
I struggle against them
Determined not to let myself be taken back
To the void

    1. I tend to connect music with different instances in my life; bad choices or happy memories, they all have a special meaning to me. It reminds me to keep moving forward and to strive to be the person that I want to be, without worrying what anyone else thinks.
