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


My heart is a star

that is burning up a ribcage.

My heart is a mountain cathedral

all covered in snow.

My heart is a summer-wine pine tree.

 My heart is an autumn airplane

that leaves a gray trail in the mellow blue.

My heart is a teardrop

 that cracks the blank pages of February snow.

My heart is a flute symphony

in a meadow of yellow flowers.

My heart is a high-flying fish

on a waterfall

reaching up to sweet candle-scented love.

It's not just about my heart; it's about all of us, really.

"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]
