"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

"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

Btw, who is firststeps? I tried typing the name in ti search and didn't find a user with that name.

You are perfecting the art of devastating metaphors.
