In every heartbeat, there is passion- the adept fingers of a pianist strumming across the keys of a Grand piano- the soft, red, velvety interior of love, of adoration, a growing independence- tree branches clawing out in infinitely many directions, all twisting and turning towards the sky, and at the end of it all, bliss- a relief of being, the realization that I am you and you are me and we are all the same, we all have eyes and brains and fingers and collarbones and hearts and they are all beautiful, escaping like birds into the disappearing atmosphere of our arteries, veins, capillaries, blood, muscle tissue, tendons, ligaments and out through our noses and mouths and extending so magnificently into every corner of the world, of the Solar System, of the Milky Way, of the Universe.

This piece is beautiful, it's really clever also, the way you represented the connection between the piano and the heart. I love the way the branches and ladder are, there's something deeply satisfying about it. Keep going!

LOVE it! Very inspiring! i love how it is something abstract and different, not how you would envision the connection between the piano and your heart! Very unique and creative! Thank you

I would just like to say how in awe I am of this... it's so beautiful and has touched me in a way that other artwork has never done. And the words you chose to use for the description... all of it, together, is a beautiful, awesome harmony. I love it. You are amazing.

Hate is often an obverse form of love.
You hate someone whom you really wish to love but whom you cannot love.

Can you cuss on here? Because it's cuss-worthy. I want to cry I love this so much. You're brain must look hardcore. I'd love to step inside for a moment. :D
