The universe is an Oreo cookie,

We are the cream.

Sweet and mysterious

We slide and glide

Through our days.

Sometimes the night

Is a hot wet boot

We’re all stuck inside.

Sometimes the night is

A strainer

Our soul gets sifted through.

The night is a tree,

We are the baby bird.

The night is

Going round and round with stars

So fine we miss the music

We don’t dare to sing ourselves.

The night is a boat,

The night is an empty beehive,

The night is too sweet to sleep.

"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]
