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


A woman who has cut marks

and a cigarette

and a bad word tattooed on her arm,

 a sad old man with breathing tubes,

 a wasted young man

with a vase of carnations,

and the teenage girl.

Ah yes, the teenage girl.

Sixteen and too young-looking

 and sad, sad, sad.

Why does she sound

 so much like me?

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

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
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]
