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

in pain

his tears
his cries

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.
