"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]


Once there was a girl

Her favorite word was loneliness

A word she hated above all else

The word that fit her best

She knew too well

Sitting on the outside looking in

Sidelines

Outcast

Strange

So alone

A constant ache

A casum deep within

Deeper than the sea

Wider than the desert.

An empty sea

A lifeless desert

A light came in

A light with a name

A friend

The darkness started to fade

The loneliness seeped away

Slowly

Until, with a start

She looked at that desert night

And saw a flower growing

She named it

Hope

And Friendship

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