impromptu 8.27 (from memory)


Author Comments

This song, with all its messiness, actually dates back to 2008, but no known file of it exists. I attempted, therefore, to reconstruct from memory, the song I let out on the piano on the day my mother died -- hence the title. I am doing this so that at least one version of this song will exist somewhere. And, as it stands, this is a version intended for two pianos.

Today's prompt is "heartbreak," and this is the song I poured out in my heartbreak on that day. Today, however, my heart's not wholly in it. I have been struggling to write anything. Even trying to channel the heartbreak I remember feeling on that day has been difficult.

Also wow this is messy. My piano skills are slipping. But y'know what? I ain't got a problem with that. In those days I remember looking longingly at the drums while lamenting that I had to be happy with keys, as those were the stereotypical "feminine" instruments and I wasn't allowed to try the instrument after my own heart, on pain of violence and other forms of abuse. But now, my longing is slowly reaching its fulfilment. I am a far better drummer than I am a pianist, and it's for the best.

I just sort of sat in silence for a moment after it finished playing. That's all I need to say here...
