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


You are the safari. I am the tiger. 

I am the wave. You are the sunshine.

I am the surfboard. You are the ice cream sundae. 

I am the shell. You are the hermit crab.

You are the ship. I am the anchor. 

You are the saxophone. I am the music.

You are the whip. I am the cowboy. 

You are I. I am you. 

No logic, no rhyme or reason, 

Just you and me — 

Rising light and clouds. 

I behold you. You behold me.

Freak out--I mixed up metaphors that would have sounded better in a different order! Oh, no! Terror in the halls of literature. Just kidding, I don't care if this makes sense or not, because I really like it.

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 is so beautiful....

It could be about anybody and any person they happen to love...you get 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]

is this a love poem or what? the title sounds like its addressed to time? wait that sounded weird. i was guessing an alternative to love poem
