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

Colors of the sunset

Slash the waves apart

Make the sand cold

Does death come knocking

Or does it stand in your house for a long time

Then take you from behind?

Digging for shells

Trillions of my thoughts

Known only to the sky.

The house is built with breath

Death is the cat that snatches it

Sighs in the blood.

Reaching for your hands

Many thoughts of summer skies

Slipping through the sands.

Shiny at the door

Sympathetic junk man

Gives me back my toys.

Swaying in the wind

Moment’s passage speaks

All of me listens.

Poetry is the help. I just have a habit of writing psychologically disturbed poems and stories...one girl in my writing class a couple years ago simply told me, "You need to see a psychiatrist." Some of my earlier works were so creepy and violent that I felt the need to tone them down, but I'd already printed them and I didn't want to spend more money on copies.

"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]

im so sorry.
