A series of artwork, coupled with a poem, about loneliness. The theme is about nostalgia, loss and one primal fear of mankind; being alone. Work in progress.


Loneliness is heartsickness
for a time and place that doesn’t exist

It is about being petrified with fear of
being a stranger in people’s company,
lost in translation

No matter who you meet
the sense of loneliness
still remains

Longing for things that are
insignificant, yet inexplicable
or never will be

Loneliness is to see time and people
pass by
being unable to come with

Loneliness is to miss you
whatever might have been

Loneliness is to
not knowing myself
whatever I will become
