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

A serenade of love

is whispered up and down the nightingale.

Rings of gold are whispering

up and down a ladder

I can reach

but never see.

Golden-bronze daisies are blooming

from starlit tea-sweet windowsills

as special as every fifth note you play

on your new violin

is so special—

it goes into my ears

and is never found again.

"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]

theres a fairy tale about a nightingale that stabbed its heart with a thorn to turn a rose red. you would like it(i did) its really weird and sad and twisted but cool. sounded like one of my plots(reincarnation?)
