Lines of your Lyrics

Lines of your Lyrics

A Poem by Alexa Tarvid

A poem about Amy Lee, the lead singer of Evanescence.


Amy Lee,

Sing to me.

Let your words fall

Like the pieces of a teenage heart.


Let them break,

Like a guitar in the hands

Of a soaring rock star.



You understand.


We’ll take my book

And set fire to its pages,

We’ll draw vines

Around the lines of your lyrics,


The puzzle pieces that drip from my mind,

The distorted pictures

That paint themselves,
You picked them up
And made a song,

You took a brush

And painted my thoughts,


In black and white


And white lace,

With mascara

Raining on your cheeks,

Red checkered cotton

And a set of keys,

You sing to me,


Amy Lee.

This is wonderful! I am a huge fan of Amy Lee and Evanescence, and I loved these lines:

You understand."

So powerful! I love how you pointed that out, and there's so much visual imagery in this piece that I am stunned. Adding it to my favorites, thanks so much for sharing this! :)
