"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]


Stars litter my soul

Broken, fallen stars

Like glass on the unswept floor

When the broom is lost

And only a mop remains

A mop, because I have plenty of water

Or tears anyway.

Same thing.

Oh, I want to laugh

That you call stars beautiful

If only you saw inside.

Maybe I would laugh

If I could.

It would feel good to laugh.

A  real laugh, that is.

A laugh in the heart of night

When I smile for no one

And the broken stars come out
