It's only spring when you first wake up,
two magpies and the dull ache of menstrual cramps
tapping on.  Death's window
sleeps in all our bones,
a dripping water faucet.
Brittle things--like love,
marlboro midnights,
a jar of not-quite-nothing--
small and fragile and ours
are the presences we carry
while running from the moon.
:iconglory-be-project: Day I'm sooooooo tired. :grump:

:iconthetitlepage:--Hey look, a title poem!

***EDIT--THANK YOU neurotype for featuring this as a DD! :squee:***

I stole the titles from THESE WONDERFUL pieces (a mix of some NEW loves with some old ones):

it's only spring when you first wake up.
two magpies and the dull ache of menstrual cramps
tapping on death's window
sleeps in all our bones
dripping water faucet
Brittle things like love
marlboro midnights
a jar of not-quite-nothing
small and fragile and mine.
the presences we carry
Running from the moon.

Please be sure to go check out all these wonderful pieces and their artists!

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked "why?"
The angel said "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way.
If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be thebest day of your life. Don't break this chain.
Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard.

please do! X3 :D (Big Grin)

Truly a wonderful poem that speaks to how talented you are to be able to take these titles, rearranging them to form something new and coherent and beautiful.

Excellent work! And congrats on the DD.

Each line boasts interesting imagery, my favourite part being the beginning with birds.

Ack! More things to read topping up the already large pile! D:

Wish I had something more meaningful to say here.... Still, nice work.
