I have been struggling to compose a sad song for several days. With the theme of the current MAC being Sorrowed Tears, I had to come up with something fitting. Yet I've had no inspiration. I began to write one song, but I could not find a way to get past the intro. I had given up any hope, and simply submitted an old work.

Tonight, however, I was stricken with sudden inspiration. I began to ponder my life, my decisions, etc. Shortly thereafter, I also watched part of Spider Man 3. Without spoiling the movie, a certain sad point in the story was accompanied by some mournful music, and it gave me shivers. I HAD to write a song. I ran upstairs to the computer and got to work. 45 minutes later, this is the result.

This song does not represent simple sadness, nor regret, nor bitterness. I does not represent the death of a loved one or the emotions that such brings. What this song represents is guilt and true sorrow. It is the feeling you get when you realized that you hurt the person you loved most; that you made a huge mistake and now have to bear to burden of your actions. It represents the consequences of your greatest sins. It represents true remorse for your actions.

I truly hope you feel the sheer emotion of this song. It came from my heart, and expresses better than any words what I have felt recently.

No dissapointment...

If you've seen the other two reviews I've written I'll put them in order now: First Sadness and Sorrow v2, then Bittersweet Memory, and now this.

In Bittersweet's I said I was hoping the next piece of your work I listen to would be enlightening... and I come no where near close to dissapointment.

I read the description and it was like a knife twisting in my heart. I've got a lot I am guilty for. A lot of bad decisions I've made that are really hurting me now. And this song really does bring those out, re-opens those wounds that I haven't really been able to heal.

I'm very glad you go for that too. You don't just write music to bring out those feelings and emotions we "want" to feel, you bring out the ones we NEED to feel. Those demons we need to face and those past moments we'd rather forget. You understand that we need both the good AND bad in our lives to move forward. By focusing on just one or the other we get stuck in the past and never look to the future.

I'll say again you do really have a powerful gift, such a power to bring out these hidden feelings from strangers using nothing more than music truly is a wonderful thing.

As I grow older, I increasingly find that the bitter moments in life serve to enhance the sweet ones. Without the contrast that comes from pain, joy would have no substance to it.

Composing, to me, is a means of taking my life experience and recording it in a meaningful way. Writing or drawing don't seem to have the emotional complexity that music does...Since music is how I record my life, it would be dishonest to write only giddy music. I try to be honest with myself when I compose, and this music is what results.

From a listening perspective, hearing sad music serves as catharsis. It allows us to freely open up and experience tough emotions that we normally close ourselves off to or attempt to bottle up. I think that is why it is so powerful; it allows us to tap into a part of ourselves that is normally inaccessible in an otherwise fast-paced world of people wearing masks. Ultimately, this kind of music can serve to make us feel more alive and at peace through the emotional release it provides.

Thank you so much for the insightful review and for your wonderful support. It means a lot to me. :)

You were right on

I completely understand what you were trying to say with this music. I can definatly feel guilt and sorrow for not manning up to my actions and hurting my fiance.... I think of the times Ive made her cry and never said I was sorry. Pondered how I managed to keep her and also at the same time was inspired to try harder and to push myself to be more understanding and caring to her needs. Blaze man you have alway inspired everyone here on newgrounds and your so humble as well, that alone makes you a true musician my friend.

Your songs always have feelings in them and my music library has grown bigger and larger as I add each of your submissions to it. Keep it up and I hope that one day when I see one of your Cd's out there Ill be able to say I already have it my computer. Ill of course buy a copy though :D.

Apologizing can be tough, but I think it is a mark of real maturity. It takes a lot of guts to admit that you've messed up, and it seems like people are usually willing to forgive when you humble yourself and genuinely try to make things right. I've been fortunate to have very forgiving people in my life despite huge mistakes on my part.

I'm really happy that the music has touched you, and I wish the best for you and your fiancee. Considering how late this response it though, maybe she is your wife now? Sorry for taking so long!

Thanks for the support!
