Nothing Messes Up and Artist

Nothing messes up an artist
like saying you like his stuff.
After that, he can never be the same.
After that, you'll be in his head.
Every time he makes a new one,
he will worry that you won't like it.
After that, he will analyze everything,
try for repeat performances.
He will be haunted by the thought:
I was better before.
