Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass

Recommended Posts

I went to a party

I came in hot
Made decisions beforehand
My mind made up
Things that would make me happy
To do them or not
Each option weighed carefully
A plan for each thought
& then I walked through the door past the open concept
& saw Violet bent backwards over the grass
Seven years old with dandelions grasped tightly in her hands
Arched like a bridge in a fallen handstand
Grinning wildly like a madman
With the exuberance that only doing nothing can bring
Waiting for the fireworks to begin
& in that moment I decided to do nothing about everything

I really like this poem  :gclap:

 

 

Do we know who Violet is? 

 

Perhaps it is HER as a child,

or someone else´s child she noticed playing once.

 

After seeing this child , playing, innocent and carefree, simply playing with no cares in the world,

waiting for the fireworks to begin, grinning ever so happily,  she thought also to be carefree like a child.

She had her head filled with so many thoughts and things to do (Each option weighed carefully, A plan for each thought)

After seeing the child, she just decided to do nothing about everything. 

 

" Take it as it comes , baby , you´re moving way too fast. "

This other poetry line comes from a Doors song, which I would not be surprised if

Lana was listening to this particular song , when she wrote her poem. 

 

Listen to the music and compare thoughts

“... and in that moment I decided to do nothing about everything”.

 

Miss Doing Nothing the most of all  :flutter:  :flutter:

 

Oh, I love this so much.

And the way she portrays Violet, her image... God, it’s so beautiful.

Imagining a visual image of Violet bent backwards over the grass is a little terrifying to say the least. 
 

“Arched like a bridge in a fallen handstand

Grinning wildly like a madman“

 

Is no one else getting like exorcist vibes from this? The first thing that comes to mind of a girl smiling in a backwards fallen handstand is that lil girl from the exorcist but instead of on stairs shes on like the grass in lana’s backyard or something
