But I Still Love You

But I Still Love You

A Poem by Alicia™
"

An ode to my little TV

"

You sit on your little shelf
In my room,
With your worn screen covered with lace,
And two little antennas standing on you,
Just so I can get reception.
 
My dear little TV,
You’re just about as old as I am,
Then again, you’re probably older.
 
Sometimes you blur out,
And I can barely make out the actors on your screen,
But I still love you,
Even though you think you’re black-and-white oh so often,
And I can’t hear anything through your tiny speakers
 
Those two antennas of yours have to be turned too often,
Just so you won’t turn gray,
But I still love you all they same.
 
Every night
I’ll continue to turn you on,
Though the paint on your little buttons
Has been rubbed off over time.
 
My dear little TV,
You know I still love you.

Written 30 seconds ago, and it probably makes no sense... Just a random thought that has been bugging me for 3 whole days. Enjoy if it's possible.

Edit: I also edited it.

HAHA, I loved this! It was quirky, off-beat, totally random, and in a weird way, relatable. :D I thought it was great how you addressed the poem directly to the television, and how you described the subject through that. You have a typo in the last line of the second to last stanza, where 'of' should be 'off'. :P This was really great though. I enjoyed reading it. :)

I kind of like this. It reminds me of my mother in law and everything she owns. No matter how old it is she loves it and refuses to trade it in for a newer model.

I would say I find it rather cute! XD...to be honest, I thought you wrote about a person whom you love...but this gives it that much more meaning you can write something this lovely about your tv...fantastic! =)

Like the topic, its somewhat relaxing and fun. Three lines are bugging me though, "And I can't even hear what those people in your screen are saying."
"Those two antennas of yours have to be tweaked every few minutes,"
"Though the paint on the remote"
I'm a real stickler for meter and rhythm, Though the rhythm is abstract it still needs to synchronize.
The rest of it was beautiful, writing a poem with great variation in syllable amount is quite difficult to do while maintaining a flow, aside from those three lines you did exceedingly well in this, I congratulate you.

Despite how utterly random this is, I really like it!

It's sweet and very funny and it reminds me of my Microwave which at 22 is 3 years older then I am and probably in better condition!

I'm glad you entered this piece in, "Be Experimental," you don't often get to read read whimsy little gems like this!

Great stuff
