"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]


Silence reigned
as the world was stained
red, stained by blood the earth was pained
red clouds dripped their heavy burden, blood rained
one person blamed
the silence ended and the people rose in droves and she was chained
their fury unsustained
by need, death she feigned
they were not fooled, from murder no abstained
her final cry of innocence drowned out, she was restrained
they killed her in a rage, correct in who they infamed (its a word now)
and then their strength waned
and they to fell dead for killing the feind.

wrote for national poetry day. it went south quickly, but it did work toward a goal of story-based poetry of mine.

You know., you can write something that makes you cringe at the time, but by the time you're twenty, you'll look back on it and say that was amazing.
