Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.
--Me


I!

Regret

Sad notes

We played on each other’s

Paint-by-number pianos,

Needing some reason to believe

They could resolve and come together

Like us.

O!

I!

Tried so hard.

O!

I!

Tried

To speak into your coming-apart

Heart,

Keep it strong.

Now

O!

I!

Regret.

This is amazing. If you could give me some advice on my poems I would really appreciate 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]

that was cool, the pattern and repetition and it kept so much in the dark
