    Kristen Stewart Debuts Poetry in Marie Claire: Read "My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole"

    Kristen Stewart isn't known for being particularly expressive, but yet again, she's keen on proving people wrong!

    In the March issue of Marie Claire, the actress reveals that she's been writing poetry for years. One poem, titled "My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole," was written after Twilight ended. Stewart was inspired to write it during a road trip stop in Texas.

    Robert Pattinon's ex-girlfriend isn't the only celebrity who dabbles in poetry. James Franco has shared his art with The Huffington Post, and a selection of Charlie Sheen's works has been published in GQ.

    "Oh, my God, it's so embarrassing," Stewart, 23, says of sharing her work. "I can't believe I'm doing this."

    "My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole"

    I reared digital moonlight
    You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black
    Kismetly ... ubiquitously crest fallen
    Thrown down to strafe your foothills
    ...I'll suck the bones pretty.
    Your nature perforated the abrasive organ pumps
    Spray painted everything known to man,
    Stream rushed through and all out into
    Something Whilst the crackling stare down sun snuck
    Through our windows boarded up
    He hit your flint face and it sparked.

    And I bellowed and you parked
    We reached Marfa.
    One honest day up on this freedom pole
    Devils not done digging
    He's speaking in tongues all along the pan handle
    And this pining erosion is getting dust in
    My eyes
    And I'm drunk on your morsels
    And so I look down the line
    Your every twitch hand drum salute
    Salutes mine...

    Stewart, who next appears in the movie Camp X-Ray, says she is often in awe of her own poems. "I like being able to hit on something, like, 'There it is.' I don't want to sound so f--king utterly pretentious, but after I write something, I go, 'Holy f--k, that's crazy,'" the single star tells the magazine. "It's the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I'm always like, 'Whoa, that's really dope.'"
