Staring at a blank paper
Is an artist's worst nightmare.
The artist is the shaper,
Their thoughts somewhere up in the air.

They are searching for inspiration,
Sometimes they are even searching the skies.
It takes a lot of concentration,
But you can always see the passion burning in their eyes.

Being an artist does not always mean you're creative.
It just means that you want to create something,
And never want to give up.
An inspired person without creative skill or experience can sometimes create the most beautiful art, just because they are inspired and don't want to give up

People do have their own opinion. Some might put rules for how a great poem should be. Its' structure, rhymes, words to use, and the contents. But I do believe we don't need all of it. Art is a freestyle masterpiece. It can be in any form. Art is the tool to reach the heart of others. What good are the arts that touch the eyes of the "masters" if the majority can't see its' beauty? Art shouldn't be a luxury for only those with special eyes can see. It should be simple but touch deep inside the heart of everbody. And yours is greatly amazing in the simplest way. Still mine is just an opinion. It is subjective.

Well it's not subjective .... because the language you use and the platforms on which you use the are all owed to that structure. Of course art can be in any form, but only for the artist that understands form and too the reasons he chooses for breaking it. Most artists understand neither form or content, and whatever the modern artist is, he is certainly not subjective. Your art sounds more like the soul of the modern day celbrity ....

Okay so overall the piece was quite interesting, simple enough, and a theme that was easy to understand. There is still a lot you could take from it. The writer could be experiencing writer's block and the writer could be distracted by something.

Your description's are good enough and I like the reference again to the artist, to emphasize that this is not just any person, that this is an artist, and that an artist is a creator.

However there are points I do want to pick up on though, specifically the last line of the first stanza. "Their thoughts somewhere up in the air." I don't quite understand why myself, but this doesn't really seem to fit too well, it strikes me as being a bit disjointed. I think it might just be the word 'up', makes the sentence a bit too wordy.

The rhyme is there, but it is rather subtle, which is good in a way, it means that your focus isn't diverted from the poem to the rhyme scheme.

"But you can always see the passion burning in their eyes." Nope, I would re-work this sentence. It is far too wordy, and seems to almost lag and drag after the rest of the poem. It stops it a little, disrupts the flow.

The last stanza I think could do with some re-work too. It doesn't seem to end the best that it could. It leaves off almost as though there is more to be said, more that could be said.

Yes, I tend to think that too. However, ask yourself this question: ''If you are looking a piece of paper in front of you. And you have absolutely no clue what to draw/write at that moment and you just start to think to find any inspiration, but can't find any at all. How would that make you feel?''

:iconnameless-please:
Nameless-please Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I get that all the time!!! But it's not the paper's fault. How would you feel if you were the paper? So blank and lonely, waiting for you to fill it....it's a challenge, sometimes it's hard, but there's always something (coming from a girl who hasn't uploaded in weeks/months).

The way I feel...sometime, one day, later, soon. There's possibility! And paper is patient, as is inspiration. It comes when it comes. (sorry for the philosophy, lol)
