The great musicians rise above the music; they transcend it. They transcend the meaning and they transcend the melody, but those technically proficient musicians, who are centered more in their head than they are in their heart, remain trapped in the music itself. In the same way, the poets remain trapped in the meaning of their words. I suspect the greatest works written come out of a place so deep that the artist, reading their own work, felt like they were reading it for the first time.
