Little Birds

Little birds
tattooed on her skin,
seem to reach the sky
caressing the clouds beneath her breast.

And I failed to notice them
in the black of the night,
accidentally brushing them aside
as if to smother them beneath a blanket of selfishness.

But as the daybreaks
they again show their need to be set free.

Just as you did. Little birds.
