3 (who?)

by the sea of mini van seats are
countries at war with self-control
and self-esteem.

I was France, with my toes dipped in the cool glass
of the windshield tinted blue at the top that always made a fake horizon,
giving me a place to drive to no matter where I was going,
(my Mediteranian manicure.)

This issummer vacation,
an orange lit the darkness
that was attracted to missiles and moths
and so they kissed as the lady reaper that he once wrote about
is lost in a lip lock that breaks the prime meridian,
and suddenly the equator is gone.

Gone is the fragility of power and invisible lines,
the Americans to my right have seized,
and we teetered as he taught her, our lady liberty,
the meaning of opportunity, and the destruction of
self-sustained membranes of virginity.

Yeah... Um... Well then!
It's an amazing poem... And you've left a lot up to the reader's imagination, as I think it should be. ^_^
But at the same time, there is a definate point I think. A concept. And that makes the whole thing a bit more special.
Anyone can write a poem with loose ties to any subject matter, but it takes an artist to use loosely tied subject matter to drive home a point.
thank you for your insight :) I also got your message on myspace! "taking up my time" haaa!! lol I"m not that important. Thanks for your intrest in my music and also for joining openEARS , i really appreciate it :D

Heh. Not to sound mean, but it's not that I thought of you as an important figure so much as I know that people have better things to do than sit around and read messages from strangers. ;)
WOAH. you're crazygood, once again arielle. I love you. I've thought about how those blue lines made fake horizons too, but I've never written so well about it, so you win in this case. anyway, this poem was amazing in the sense that it had me reading it over and over to finally reach the core meaning, and each time the poem got even better. those are the best poems one can write.
no seriously .. i LOVE you.. let's get married

<33333333333333333333333333 :hug: :love:
dude, definitely. when's a good marriage time for you?
mm i'd prefer a mid-september wedding.. when it's not as humid so my hair won't puff majorly
