Studied and occasional,
With devastating nonchalance,
A movie blazes on the blanket, on the wall.
Fingers are silhouettes on the screen,
Drowning in the symmetry.
Tennessee Williams reclining admirably, all very
Matter-of-fact and casually confident.
Twining like cats, bitten by bitter air,
We drive through the dimness, eyes blurred and burning,
Straining to decipher the calculus of a heart's rhythm.

I think thats very elaborate and meaningful.

I personally find myself writting for no reason about diff things that go on. But I must say...I like what u wrote.

jen said...

I love the last two lines. They're so beautiful.

...calculus of a heart's rhythm.

Wonderful. Truly. I'm not sure if I am hoping this is a lyric from the upcoming album or just some random brilliance. Either way, it's great.

I don't know why but my chest kind of burns when I read this bit,it's beautiful.

But that could be all the muesli I just ate, who knows.

Tennesee Williams... boy, he could write. I don't know if such a thing exists, butI would love to read a big book of his poetic ramblings, rather than just in play form.

MyBoxers said...

I like the Williams mention, he's a good writer. The poem seems so deep, so true. I love it!

Love ya, Jade!

I really do admire your writing so much. There are very few times when I can write a poem of that quality, but I love doing it all the same!

screaming like dogs said...

at first i thought it said 'twinkling like cats' and i was thinking of those glittery lisa frank pencils and folders i used to have in elementary school with sparkly animals

drowning in the symmetry

sometimes i feel like you know me better than i know myself

natalie said...

You're so talented.
I love this. It kind of sounds like something I've always wanted to say in a poem but never been able to write down on paper, or put it together like you did. Well done.

pyre said...

I love this.

Twining like cats, bitten by bitter air

that conjures the most amazing image in my mind.

...beautiful.

Nish said...

thats so pretty and cute after i read it i cried and when i cry for that it makes me feel like a very very distant relative of yours which is kinda messed up

Simply Caley said...

Do you write poetry, often?

I help run the Creative Writing Club at my former high school, and it would be spectacular if you could send me something short written by yourself to read for the club. I've converted many of them to AFI fans, and I'm sure they'd love it.

Have a peaceful day and night,
