your music is marvelous sad. do you really suffer?

I like how you put "marvelous "and "sad" together-- and I have indeed been hailed the "Queen of Melancholy."

There is an enlightenment, a beauty and bravery in the darkness. Allowing yourself the deep layers underneath that phony shell of comfort and convention most people hide behind.

Yes, we all suffer. Pain is universal. We are each dealing with our own unique issues whether regret, remorse, guilt, sadness, loneliness, etc.

Dreams and wishes are the simple acknowledgment of longing for something more, wanting to move beyond. The word "passion" in itself means suffering--- ardent outbreak being acted upon. Without that feeling, we'd be stagnant. This is what makes us human...

That is why my music resonates with listeners on such a profound level.
