"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"
"I just switched 50 things to anonymus and it doesnt even make a diff- why was i writing this again? where was i? hm.... oh well."


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

"I'd rather be a forest than a street.
If I only could, I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet."

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