Absent Heartache (Lyrics/Poem)

Pulling pieces out from in

While continuing to stand

Answering the questions

In unfamiliar surrounds,

Words spilled onto canvas

Air smelling of fear

Hesitation in the movements

As truth prepares to reveal

.

Absent heartache

Hits you like an earthquake

Loses words you need to make

Expressions for how you feel,

The confusion

Rocks you off your steady ground

Feeling like you’re falling down

Trembles to your core

.

Opposite illusion

Physicality disappears

Openness of emotion

Abstract conception of tears,

Relating to the other

Sat next to your brother

Hidden carefully shared

But so much left unsaid

.

Absent heartache

Hits you like an earthquake

Loses words you need to make

Expressions for how you feel,

The confusion

Rocks you off your steady ground

Feeling like you’re falling down

Trembles to your core

.

When the work is not viewed and shared, the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined.
