My Art. My Heart. 06/2011
I named this painting after a song that pretty much described how I felt at that very moment, Hiding My Heart by Adele.
This I painted when I fell in love with a person that I had to let go of, not because of the lack of love we had for each other, but because of geography.
It is often because of reasons like this that make the loss of love even more painful. It is when things are like this when you wonder about what answers you would have for questions that begin with “what if”?
What if he lived in the same city?
What if we tried harder?
What if he’d find me again in the future?
Questions, all questions, and no answers. All I really had left was the memory of how beautiful and real it was and that is enough.
This is how the story went I met someone by accident
Who blew me away, blew me away
It was in the darkest of my days
When you took my sorrow and you took my pain
And buried them away, buried them away
Drop off at the train station
Put a kiss on top of your head
Watch you wave, you watched you wave
Then I went on home to my skyscrapers
Neon lights and waiting papers
That I call home, I call that home
I woke up feeling heavy hearted I’m going back to where I started
The morning rain, morning rain
Although I wish that you were here
That same old road that brought me here
It’s calling me home, it’s calling me home
I wish I could lay down beside you when the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I’ve ever known, you disappear one day
So I spend my whole life hiding my heart away
I can’t spend my whole life hiding my heart away
Hiding My Heart – Adele
