The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

See, baby!
The piano strings throb away
in hidden places.
See how the apple tree waves tenderly
against the fresh linen sky.
See, baby, how the tiny birds cry
for their pacifiers.
Some swift, subtle magic
has stripped the blindness from our eyes,
so you will look at that special place
between my nose and mouth,
you will look at that well in my eye
nobody else sees,
and you will serenade me with a kiss.


The author's comments:

This is based off the 1965 hit song "The Lover's Concerto"--it's not about me.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

i dont really get it but i also don't get romance(as evidenced by the only romance story I've ever written)

oh btw i just remembered to tell you if you don't know(it took me months to figure this out) if you want to upload a profile pic go to settings and select one, same way you change your username. if you cant download pictures to use(a barrier to me for a while bc my computer doesn't left click) just right click or tap with 2 fingers. if you have a Chromebook in the bottom right taskbar there's a screenshot thing, it will let you select a small area. hope i didn't sound condescending or anything, idk abt other people but i like to personalize.
