Confession Of A Tired Artist - Poem by Matthew Thomas Donovan

As I stand there in a makeshift gallery
It becomes increasingly obvious
That no-one's looking at the
Art
The paintings just kind of hang there
On the walls,
Unnoticed by the chattering
Crowds

It is then that I realize
The futility of it all,
The foolishness of wearing my heart on my sleeve,
Only to be washed over by the corners of uninterested eyes

I am a decoration,
a sad little insect
wriggling on the wall,
stuck into place
with a pin.
