Laura Pierce

The blackness of drowning out scales. A treble clef becomes the singular dot in existence a door that curls tighter shutting out all other spectrums an encompassing auditory black hole. Circular covers to give sound and convey hypnotizing swirls. Arrive at the end the flow is to arrive at the other side of expression, this is a birth untouched meaning coming from the dark. Too much becomes the event horizon to tumble down the lines it can take us to a vista a drugging volume. Danger perhaps but air to some and makes the inanimate alive sucking in until all is one ecstasy to continue a sweet solace.
