Artist’s Burden

Grasping the soul as life heightens,
Like heavy ball and chain, it means to slow.
Wary of its strength it frightens
The long, monotonous, dried-up plateau.
The further you drag, the more it tightens,
Compressing the heart, restricting the flow.
Creative release is all that lightens
This weight of which true artists know.
