Can you not see, I have no tears in my eyes?
Can you not hear, I have no cries in my voice?
Can you not feel, my deep bitter pain within?
Can you not taste, my sweet fallow sorrow without?

But I do, I do most mercifully have
the bristled brush in my clumsy hand
the faded ink upon the sodden paper
And these are my voiceless tearless pain for

a
tearless
voiceless
artist
in pain

these
are
his tears
his cries

an
artist
in pain
in pain

why does he do art?
why indeed?

---------------------------------------------

They asked, 'Why do your art always weep?' I said, 'Because my eyes have no more tears.'
So they asked, 'Why do your ink always bleed?'
So I said, 'Because my heart has no more love.'
Then they asked, 'But why are you smiling thus?'
And thus I said, 'Because there is no more Hope.'

And so to him
who is no more

I asked, 'Who are you to drag me up?'
He said, 'I am you and you are me.'
So I asked, 'Why do you wish to hurt me so?'
So he said, 'I only wish that you would live.'
Then I asked, 'It will hurt if you are here.'
And thus he said, 'But life will end, if I am done.'

I'm sorry I cant say to you what I feel for your drawings whit the write words even if I would like to because I cant speak very well English. but I have to try.
I look at your gallery since more than two years. and each time I do it; I still want to cry in front of the sadness and the magnificent power of your drawings. the way you draw is the way I see the world.The face of your characters is the reflect of my other soul. I don't know if I love more the drawings or the one that done them, but surely, I am in love.
