The Land of 1000 Fires

Recommended Posts

Written Version
Two blue steel trains run through the tunnels of your cool blue steel eyes
Vernon
Rock quarry
The vastness of which has nothing on my beautiful mind
Dylan
I hear Dylan when i look at you
i can see it on my arm in invisible ink like a tattoo
The ying to my yang
The toughness to my unending softness
A striking example of masculinity
Firm in your verticality
Sure in your confrontation against all elements
And duality
The sun to my wilting daisy
The earth to the wildflower that doesn't care where it grown
 
Vernon
Everything's burnt here
There's no escaping it
The air is fried and on fire
I've never really fallen in love
But whatever this feeling is
I wish everyone could experience it
This place feels like a person
Familiar
Like someone i've stood next to before
But never while i was standing next to you
Thank you
For being here
For bearing witness to my vastness
 
Through the year I've called you in and out of my orbit
You, in your madness
The satellite that's constellating my world
Mimicking the inner chaos that i've disowned
A mirror to my past life retribution
A reflection of my sadness
If i'm going to keep on living the way that i'm living
i cant do it without you.
My feet aren't on the ground
i need your body to stand on
Your name to define me
On top of being a woman
i am scared
and
Ethereal
and
 
There are seven worlds in my eyes
 
I'm accessing of all them once
 
One to draw my words and my muses
Another one i try and harness late at night that lies somewhere
Off of the right of Jupiter
And then of course there's this one i live in
The land of 1000 fires
That's where you come in
 
You
Vernon
Dylan
Two blue steel trains
Running through the tunnel of your
Cool blue steel eyes
 
To guide me far from the world of my early days
That i cant quite make out clearly
That beckon me towards a high sea cliffs
On long car rides
 
Towards a future place
A world unknown to me
Made up of something surreal and dripping
Flowers in solar systems Oversized
 
You Vernon Dylan
 
No words needed to sponge up the
Dark nights
No explanations for the globes in my eyes
Shoulder to shoulder in the factory light
Letting me be who i would have been
If everything had turned out alright
 
3 alternative endings
Course through my blood on ice
i thrive because i say i do
and because its what i write
 
But honestly if you werent here
i dont know what things would look like
 
That's my why no matter what world i'm in
i navigate by satellite
Vernon
Dylan
and you in your madness
 
Two trains running

 

Through your cool blue eyes

and because its what i write
 
But honestly if you aren't here with me
i dont know what things would look like
 
That's my why no matter what world i'm in
I'm accessible by only one satellite
Vernon
Dylan
and you in your madness
 
With two blue steel trains running through the tunnels of your cool blue steel eyes

I love this poem and how she uses Bob Dylan as a symbol almost, like a personification of masculinity/the quintessential male experience. It’s interesting.

omg what happened to my sis scarlettohara? why is she banned?
