"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

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Wonder what's this poem about...AHHHH! *Explodes into a million pieces.*
