Artist Alone Poem by Susan Lacovara

Artist Alone

Rating: 4.8

It is not with the sadness,
Nor madness,
Of Van Gogh
That I exclude myself
On winter days, in February...
Neither is it with the passion
Of Mc Kuen' s loneliness
That prompts me to feed
The returning gray cat...
Surely it isn't the same
Broken hearted heaviness
That took Dali' s spirit
Makes me question why
I surrender
To the paleness
Of my room, unattached
To another's heart....
Tis merely my own poet's prison
That paints my starry starry night.

Another excellent poem written with such descriptiveness and feeling that you always do so well. My friend, my favorite, I hope all is well.

It is merely my own poet's prison That pains my starry starry night. Superb expression projecting the inference of introspection of almost every one in our fraternity. Heartiest Congratulations for the poem of the Day.

Say 'WHAT'? So true the title you have given to your poem, Susan. Artistically depicted to see and feel 'alone'. With a condoning that neither accepts or rejects. It is what it is and that's it. Very nice. Thank you.

This is not sadness nor madness. Nothing can hamper the mind of an artist. An artist paints the canvas but a poet paints mind of self and others creating beautiful poetry....10
