Or, my prefered title, “I Have Become Lost to the World”.
This is a picture I became inspired to make after hearing the song by Gustav Mahler, to the text of a poem by Friedrich Rückert. I don’t think I did it much justice, however…
Poem: I have become lost to the world,
With which I used to waste so much time;
It has heard nothing from me for so long,
That it may well believe that I have died!
I do not care at all,
If it considers me dead.
I also cannot contradict it,
For really I have died,
Died to the world.
I have died to the world’s turmoil,
And I rest in a silent domain.
I live alone in my heaven,
In my love, in my song!
And song by Mahler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8M6XLLDJW4
Not much more to say, I might try remaking it without it being so bland in the future.
