Lonely Heart of an Artist

Lonely Heart of an Artist

Maybe I have to have a lonely heart to be a good artist.
From time to time I’m allowed a small glimpse of what it feels like to be connected and this feeling causes enthusiasm and enthusiasm causes energy and this energy can be transformed into art.
Maybe I’d be a better artist if I had found the other half but I mean it’s just a thought..a random thought just coming and leaving again, like inspiration itself. Coming, leaving but leaving a mark, a trace and then it’s gone.
People standing in front of me, telling me that I’m not alone.
I never said I was alone. I said I was lonely.
It’s just a thought. But maybe, just maybe I have to have a lonely heart to be a good artist.
Maybe that’s the price I have to pay.
