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

You are the safari. I am the tiger. 

I am the wave. You are the sunshine.

I am the surfboard. You are the ice cream sundae. 

I am the shell. You are the hermit crab.

You are the ship. I am the anchor. 

You are the saxophone. I am the music.

You are the whip. I am the cowboy. 

You are I. I am you. 

No logic, no rhyme or reason, 

Just you and me — 

Rising light and clouds. 

I behold you. You behold me.

Freak out--I mixed up metaphors that would have sounded better in a different order! Oh, no! Terror in the halls of literature. Just kidding, I don't care if this makes sense or not, because I really like it.

"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]

is this a love poem or what? the title sounds like its addressed to time? wait that sounded weird. i was guessing an alternative to love poem
