Dreams from outer space take me up the glittering leaves of the Christmas tree.

Dreams from outer space are hollow, gorgeous, spacious. They are the chandelier I saw when I was very small. They are the green glass panes. They are the majestic, sunlit staircase.

Dreams from outer space bring me to the heat of Venus, the rust of Mars, the wrath of Jupiter, the depression of Neptune, the loneliness of Pluto.

Dreams from outer space take me from my childhood of longing to the Milky Way and the fathomless stars.

Dreams from outer space bring me up, up, up and take me far away.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

"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]

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

This was really good
