Dear Amanda,

I am sure you do not know me
I'm part of the masses, just another fan
Another of your followers on Twitter
Your time I do not want to fritter
So, please excuse this silly letter
Normally I write poetry way better
There is no aweseome picture I can
Gift you, just this poem. You see,

I fail amazingly to draw a straight line
All I can give you are words that rhyme
As a token of my admiration
Because you are my inspiration
Ever since the day I heard one song
-it was "Sing" - I love you all along
I saw you with "Evelyn Evelyn" that one time
And that evening became the heaven of mine

I cried reading your husband's report
About the Dresden Dolls Halloween concert
Because of joy and envy, a bit
I wished I could've been part of it
But now I had this chance once more
To see the artist I so adore
This letter is written by a fan, it's overt
Who wants to show you her love and support

Though I fear it became far too long
But maybe, mabye you still read on
It's hard to write these things to you
Because normally I never do
Writing teenage poetry letters or be
All fangirly about other heroes of me
Finally I say it, it won't be withdrawn
Amanda Palmer, my hero, you made me strong!

Thanks to your music I found the strength
To be myself and stopped trying to bend
Who I am, just to fit in
Fighting a fight I couldn't win
Now I am who I am and owe this to you
Thus you are my hero and idol, too
This letter now has to come to an end
Thank you for reading it despite its length!

Sincerely yours,
one of your fans
Probably not my best, but written from the heart.
I felt like I was 14 again when writing it, maybe even younger.
I normally don't do any kind of fanart at all.
so bear with me here ^_^
