Love And Art - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

When your love is returned with love,
there's no story.
When your love isn't returned,
a story starts.
You are sad,
you are feeling pains,
you are crying,
your heart is on fire,
and the fire then becomes a source of light,
light that inspires you to express your pains,
your feelings and emotions.
The artist then paints his best painting,
the musician composes his lovely tune,
the singer sings his best song,
and the poet writes a poem,
a work of art!

    I too find that pain at least slightly trumps other emotions as the one that spawns greater creativity (Report)Reply
