you are the bird in my hand

A Poem By Anna // 8/5/2013

you are the bird in my hand
our friendship is living and fragile
I can feel its heart beat fast on the vein in my palm

you are worth two in the bush
we are not entwined like undergrowth
two is the number of unattainable birds and lovers

nothing makes a bird sing like flying
nothing makes me write like falling in love

flaws for me, flaws for you
a bird in the hand cannot fly
you do not even like poetry

As for the poem: YAY! YOU POSTED SOMETHING! And goodness, I loved it. There are so many lines I just love.

Er...there's more. But now I'm thinking I probably should have copy>pasted the entire poem. :P

Really, this was beautiful. Gosh, your writing is beautiful and your poetry makes me wish I wrote this.

I DIDN'T SEE THIS!

I can't believe I didn't see this! Aw! I absolutely love it, and I hope there is more! Ditto to Homey! Might as well not even try to pick out my favorite lines, because I'd end up pasted the whole poem! So wonderful and it feels so simplistic, yet complicated.
Love it! Please post more... if you have time of course :D
