The music flows through the air, curling and twisting like invisible smoke. I inhale it and feel it settle in my chest as the drums play joyfully with the rythm of my heart and the music. A voice breaks through, whispering and caressing as the colorful invisible smoke spreads in my blood, filling my body with pulsing life. I hum with the music, my whole body lost in the swirling tones that flow and curl and hum all around and in me. It is almost painful, the power of a simple song. I thrum and pulse with the music as it stretches into eternity, an infinite amount of time squeezed into a few short minutes. I rejoice in the feeling of life. I know the song is over soon, and when it ends, the hard, cold real world will come back. I close my eyes and cling to the colorful humming life in and around me, desperately holding on to another world, one made of music and color, where dreams are true and imagination is the master.
I seriously... don't know. But Caliban's Dream is one of the songs from the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. It is possible to buy an album (Isles of Wonder) with all the music from the Ceremony, which is what dad did. I recommend it with all my heart.

This can also be seen as a short story. Script. Explanation. Mind-reading. Thingy. for my one WIP. I won't reveal any more than that.
