The Best Art

The best art always leaves someone in the dark;

That’s why you need to see it with your own eyes.

It’s not for everyone, nor is it supposed to be;

It’s not something you can explain in words, anyway.

It’s something you feel in your gut, or maybe your chest;

It’s something you feel, not something you wish.

It’s something you learn to love on your own,

Something that only speaks to you, and no one else.

It’s not something you can give a rating to;

It’s not something you can write a review of.

It’s something you can’t even tell your friends about,

Because it’s not the sort of thing you can explain.

And that’s why the best art is the hardest to share.
