"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf

Sun set,

Birds in nests. 

Moon and sky met,

All humans are at rest. 

Graves and alleys are rustling,

Creatures big and small are about.

Hear the mumbling,

Run and get out.

Shadows cast by moonlight,

Now you must wait for the morning rise,

Before they get your hide, 

In the deep dark black night.

The author's comments:

This poem is about the dangers of the night and how deadly a midnight stroll can be your last steps. Basically this poem has no intended purpose, it's kinda of a mystery poem, but please leave a comment and tell me how you like it!

"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]

oh, anything you write about night: my English teacher absolutely loved one thing I did that had the line pewter moon, and I think ebony sky is along those line too.
