my biggest concern is her doing the most basic & cliche white girl poetry

 

Before that, it was a side project. She also said herself she is bad at marketing stuff.  And is it just me, or does she tend to forget she is Lana fucking Del Rey? 

this sksks

 

she doesn't seem to comprehend just how powerful she is & still could be, it's like she's been 6-7 in the business n still doesn't know anything but nobody is gonna stop her anyways

Exactly.
I mean, she said « poetry book » and we were all like « shut up, take my money », even I am not that excited about that project to be honest.

Wait nooooo... sorry I'm new here so I don't know what makes y'all think it's not gonna happen (if that's what you're insinuating welp)
...so why? (no shade I'm just curious oop)

Unfortunately Lana suffers from liesatosis. It’s basically a disease that can be cured if she told the truth more than 5x in a row but she hasnt been able to accomplish this yet.
Keep the faith though darling.

i was really pumped for this, i felt like having some of lanas own writing would be like a little inside look at her mind. but i think its unlikely this "book" will ever come to light

I mean she's probably adding things to this and thinks of releasing it in a distant future at this point.

I really doubt she's doing anything about its release now

The poem Lana posted on Instagram is confirmed for the book, as Lana changed the caption to “a poem from my book…”

Can we assume that this is from the book as well? I honestly think it's much better than Happy. (the moon/june rhyme tho  :deadbanana: )

 

We take walks in parks and around golf courses 
It’s practically Elizabethan without the horses
We’re not in Bath but it feels like we are 
Instead of carriages we have
tesla mom cars 
with Lamborghini doors with no kids yet in the back seat – 
the world still stretched out in front of us like a carpet of wildflowers. 
A Northern California super bloom 
We have one thing in common 
we grew up too soon 
now it’s time to grow down 
down to the moon
down to the sun 
down into June
To plant tiny flowers together 
Tulum 
LA 
Topanga
Ojai and point dume
let’s do it all together this afternoon


I AM MY ONLY GOD

The more I read it the more I like it.

 

The sun and moon part reminds me of this Tupac poem...

 

Your ways R similar 2 the rays of the sun
Warm 2 many but 2 strong 4 some
The more u R needed the brighter u shine
Watched 4 2 long and your brilliance will blind
The eyes of mortal men who threaten u with Doom
They regret 2 c u set but it is time 4 the moon

New poem from Lana:

Matcha, coffee, tears, and rain
Drown my blues, myself, my pain
My world, my people, all my love
Shall gleam and glow like light above
I speak through tongues of Dalai Lama
And plan my day just how I wanna
Poppyseeds and evergreens
Through dusk and dawn I am the tree
The tree that seeks the light to bloom
And plant my seeds upon the tombs
Of Queens and kings
Of Pharoahs too
Of maids and workers
And gurus too
I am the fruit
I am the treat
I am the light the world will seek
I scream my songs to the same skies Angels spread their wings
I bless those who I love & banish those who only seek diamond rings
For I am the love they sing about
I am the melody the church will shout
I am the bells that ring upon the marriage
And the force that helps horses pull the carriage
For I am all these things and so much more
I tell you god, I am whole- down to my core
