"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]


To the Broken Soul

Who can't Recall

The Warmth of Good and Joy


To the Deep Down Crier

Who's Lost Your Way

And Cannot Find a Light


To the One in the Rain

Who’s Never Known

The Sun and Cloudless Sky


To the Searching Child

Trapped Deep Inside

You Know There Must be More


To the Grief-Struck One

Who Weeps for Yourself

And the Life You Never Lived


To You Who Can't Find

The Soul You Know is Somewhere Inside

And the Cure You Must Have Lost


For the Feelings That You Never Felt

And the Ice Heart You Cannot Melt

And the Sorries Said Inside


The Child was Born With The Light of Christ

And Thought It Lived Inside

But the Pains and Tears Broke Through Your Heart


And Now That Light is Dim

And You Search the World but Cannot Find

Any Burnt-Heart Salves


You Searched to Heal but You Never Did

You Never Searched Your Soul 

For Fear of What the Inside Could Hide

 

The Monster in Your Closet is 

A Monster in your Heart

And You Never Took a Candle in To See if it Was Real


You Never Checked and You’ll Never Search

Because You’re Afraid of The Dark

You’ll Never See Your Light


You’ll Never Find a Cure

You’ll Never Let Me Show

The Path to Being Whole


Oh So Close, As I Watch You Spiral Down

Silent, Because I Know What You’ll Say

It Breaks Me, My Silence, But Not As Broken As You


I Know You’ll Never Come

And I Know You Never See 

When That Child Flashes Through


Silent, I’ll Stay Silent

However Much it Kills Me

Because You Can Never Let Light In


Because You’re Afraid Of Monsters In The Dark

then i guess this poem is about you, isnt it? isnt that the beauty of poetry, that it can mean anyone, the versatility? its to any and every broken soul.
and you know you can always confide in me without any judgement or stigma, right? i dont promise i'll have any good advice, but i can always listen.

"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

I feel like the person this poem is written about. I have issues I've never told anyone and never planned to tell anyone, but pretty soon they're going to come out anyhow, and I'm very afraid.
