unhappy artists.

to be an artist is to be unhappy.

a popular formula that runs in letter and paint,
dripping in intervals like tear and rain.
a little boy once asked me,
“what does it take to make something lasting”,
and i told him,
“broken emotions.”

it’s all heart and art,
until someone stops feeling.
we are the artists who create ourselves.
we create ourselves with every stroke of brushes,
we create ourselves with every click of keys,
we create ourselves with every tap of feet.

you’ll find us hiding in google searches,
“quotes for breakup”,
“quotes for sadness”,
“quotes for life”.
and sometimes,
“quotes for love”.

the world was made by a creator
and perfected by artists.
we are the lonely,
comforting the lonely.
melancholy is our fuel,
and we aren’t ashamed of it.

to be an artist is to be unhappy.


Take care
