The hope of art

The hope of art

A Poem by The Ink Chapters
"

Art saves us from emptiness

"
art is a release of pain and beauty
it is an emerging force that empowers the mind
and allows it to flow like water down a silk sliver of a moon
it is poetry on the lips of a lover that has been abandoned
or for the madman who lives in a bottle
rocking like a ship 
back and forth
back and forth
art is splashed on a canvas
or keyed into a tree
it is the release of thoughts which cannot be expelled
with simple words
the words unspoken
that ravish the tongues of the depraved
and leave them curling like smoke
billowing into the night
with curtain robes and long hair
art is freedom
where anger resides
where hatred and angst and loveliness exhumes
it rests like a tomb
and it grows like a willow
it is forever expanding
and some feel proud
others feel dismayed simply because it was not expressed
in the way they desired
when really 
it was always meant to be
art is music
when the words of the damned
burst forth with a courage 
so eternal
and yet so momentary
art is life
when there is no hope

this is really rough, just pooled out of me on a 4am writing binge.

I agree with your thoughts.
"art is music
when the words of the damned
burst forth with a courage
so eternal
and yet so momentary
art is life
when there is no hope"
The above lines are perfect. We need music, art and words. Does take courage to show. I agree, art is life. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

4am or not, its quite an exceptional write. Metaphors and imagery on and on. Captivating read. Perhaps... lifes' hope ~ flowing art.

Incredible word-crafting & imagination-pounding! I am in awe of writers who can spill ALL THIS in a carefree & spontaneous way. This does not feel manicured or thought-out at all. It feels like automatic writing & even more so becuz it really does speak for all of us. Many writers try to describe what the art may be, but it's usually mostly their own viewpoint. This poem is remarkably expansive, covering all kinds of possibilities, which makes it equal to the insurmountable task of fulfilling your title (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
