Sorry if I haven't made any thing. But lately nothing has been coming to my mind. It's like when I try to make music, this sort of emptiness emerges and just fills my mind to a point where I just give up on it entirely. Well I gave it a shot.

In my mind I tried to imagine a looming terminal illness that can affect you. I imagine an old man dying in December with a 1000 stories, but no family or friends to tell it to. Kind of like how this musical dry spell feels like, but, theres always a little hope.

Any ways this is going out to you. Enjoy

Unlike so many things, I can feel this. This rips and tears at your soul. It attacks something inside us, something that cannot be described. Though it lacks variation, in its entirety, it is a wonderful work. The slurs in the first third are quite well executed. And the right sounds are brought out. But nonetheless, much of the piece is far too loud. Some parts could use improvement. But, in the end, the central melody is a haunting that will forever remain in our hearts. This song used to bring be despair. But, I see something different now. It is a light. A streak of light, in darkness. It's something that can't be held. It's something that cannot be touched.
No, for this is a song of hope. This is likely the best of its kind on Newgrounds.
I have but a single complaint. This piece begins elegantly, and that feeling is killed towards the end. The song becomes obnoxiously cacophonous, and the beauty is strained. There is so much potential to this song. What we needed was a climax. A cry of pair. And that was not present.
I present a nine, for this pieces delivers emotion, but fails to extend beyond that par.

Good job

Truly a nice piece. I found it to be very Satie-like (And Satie is a genius).
It is a tranquil piece, and not repetitive at all- Great job!
I have to say however I never felt any hint of sadness in this music. Rather it felt peaceful. Keep it up

A beautiful work of art.
Stemmed from a well of emptiness.
A world slowly unfolds and as time passes by, noises rip the placidity and the world is opened
As the piece progresses the nothingness fades to revel sheer desperation.
Quick feet conjure a symphony and a euphoria rises; a false sense of hope.
But without catching the sites of the great, the rush is over; the song fades back to the dark.
