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

Running in the green

I find a sunhole

Flop on my back and think

I stare up at the clouds

Feel their melody

Giving to me a bed of warm apple tree grass.

Baby, won’t you return

And hold me in your strong tree arms

Life is no good living without you

Till you come I serenade the clouds—

They hold me in their arms

Tell me they love me

Over and over

Whispering through branches of time.

It is a love poem, or for others like me...as I have no lover...it is a nature peom about longing for someone.

"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]

ive been kissing a lot of "boyfriends" latly, after discovering a better way to annoy my friend than calling her short(which she is). they were all destroyed. kissing leaves and proclaiming my undying love really gets on her nerves. inevitably, she gets them and shredds them. alas, for the loves of my life.
and to be clear im litrally talking about leaves picked from random trees, which i then kiss to annoy her. the only human boy ive kissed is my brother that one time when we were kids and decided to be rebels. tho we were laughing so hard i wouldnt call it a kiss. i have no desire to kiss anyone, seems like a good way to share germs. also, to young to date, also not intrested, also boys are annoying. somed..da...*explodes*. shoot now im actually sad. good job, dawn.
