The Melody of the Music

She pressed her fingers lightly to the keys. They moved rhythmically across the panel, releasing a flow of notes from the piano. She closed her eyes as she let the music gently caress her ears. It filled her mind and became all that she was. The emotion in the song was enticing and surreal. It had a softness to it that just drew you in and wouldn’t let you go. As the song reached its climax, there was a knock at the door. Her fingers stopped and the music ended. The moment was over. As she slowly came back to the real world, the image of the music began to fade from her mind. She opened the door and walked out. The keys on the piano remained, waiting for her to return so they could once again fall into the sweet surrender of the melody.
