Vienna Teng: A Poet

I have been a fan of Vienna Teng for a very long time. She is an independent singer song writer that is greatly under appreciated. She has written some of my all time favorite songs and if I had any talent as a poet, singer or even just as a creative writer in general I would want to write the way she does. Her voice is clear and pure and her lyrics are entrancing and surprising. She spends a lot of time exploring different genres of music, often dipping her toes into genres like jazz and folk. I adore er with every fiber of my being and I want just want to share with you some of the poetry she has graced my life with. If you haven’t checked her out please do! Also she’s written a musical!!!!!!!

“Gravity”

Hey love
Is that the name you’re meant to have
For me to call

Look love
They’ve given up believing
They’ve turned aside our stories of the gentle fall

But don’t you believe them
Don’t you drink their poison too
These are the scars that words have carved
On me

Hey love
That’s the name we’ve long held back
From the core of truth

So don’t turn away now
I am turning in revolution
These are the scars that silence carved
On me

This the same place
No, not the same place
This is the same place, love
No, not the same place we’ve been before

Hey, love
I am a constant satellite
Of your blazing sun
My love
I obey your law of gravity
This is the fate you’ve carved on me
The law of gravity
This is the fate you’ve carved on me
