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.

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

The lonely feeling, so well portrayed It enters the heart. The secret of good poetry, molding feelings into words. This lovely poem does that and more, it creates mood, and takes us directly ' into the paleness, of her room, unattached' Our hearts, snatched. Excellent work.!
