The Edge

An old man with climbing gear walks to a large mountain of snow. and rock. He approaches the bottom. As he does, at 42 seconds, he lays his hand ontop of a rock and begins to slowly walk up the mountain. He walks up a path until 1:53. He trips, and falls on hi back. Everything is gray in front of him. Tiny specks of white snow fly over his face. He sits up and stares at the snowy world around him. His house in the background is old and rickety. The trees are all dead. The lake is frozen over. The animals are all shivering in their homes. He decides the best thing to do is to continue climbing.

And so he does at 2:30. He grabs a rock and gets up. He slams his pickaxe into the mountain and begins spiraling upwards. Sweat rolls down his cheeks. His legs shake. His wrinkly skin begins to freeze. A tear falls from his eye and falls down towards the white world. He climbs and reaches a tall point at around 3:12

Over the edge of the white barren hill lies the world below him quiet and still
The snow is all ice. The wind is all dumb. Everything is so still and numb.

He looks afar over the snow, and jumps. Everything goes black. Ironically, it is still a solid feeling of nothingness, just like the whiteness from whence he came.

Thats what I felt in this song. Corny or not corny, I loved the feeling.

You are a musical connisseur. A very heart felt thankyou for your reviews.

Keep it up!

I used to come to newgrounds for the games, but the only thing that keeps me coming back is the rare music gems I find in the audio portal like this one. I've become addicted to your works, and would hate to see you go, you are one of the best here on NG.

Hope you reconsider, and don't let the haters get to you. They're just jealous. ^_^

MarkySpark responds:

I know what you mean lol I did reconsider and I do come back often, infact every day now. I love making music and will never stop. I thank you for your words, they mean a lot to me.


A beautiful song so delicately played. The pressure of every note says something. I really do love your work and have bought some tracks from your website today. Please never stop making music Marky.

Well done

They rated this zero? Maybe they missed a button or what?
I like this piece, sounds good. No matter what other people think, it's nice.
Do not give up!


your melody is peaceful I need that !
great !

MarkySpark responds:

Thanks man, Just got another hate vote lol I am sure it's not worth a zero. Imagine how jealous they are to do that.
