her spine was dusk
 and unmade nests,
 but he tried to live there
 anyway;

he was neither nocturnal
 nor a dawn-believer,
 so he suffocated
 in the birdhouse of her ribs.

Thought I'd turn out a piece before I drown in the pile of schoolwork.

Recently, I've been a crier to Ingrid Michaelson's song The Chain.

Lovely. Actually, sad, but still wonderful. Makes me think of love that isn't mutual.

There's a play I saw once where everyone forgets about the phenomenon of night so people fall into a quiet panic. Newscasters across the country comment on the arrival of darkness, bravely standing their ground as the nation is engulfed by a shadow it knows nothing of, as the nation wonders whether the sun will rise again.

Sometimes the darkness doesn't last only for the night but I promise you a rose Rose, because the red sun had once risen and it does rise again.

:giggle: I'm glad to meet a fellow fan then! I quite enjoy the song, too. My choir ended up doing an a cappella version of this piece, and it brought me to tears every time. (:
And thank you so much! I know I'm awfully late in replying (shame on me), but I really appreciate your words. They mean a lot!
I hope your new year is splendid, lovely! :rose:

Unfortunately, I don't have a recording or anything, otherwise I'd love to share! I kept pestering my sister to video it, just for the memories, but she always enjoys listening more than staring through a camera :giggle:. It was a truly beautiful arrangement, though! I don't remember where we got it, but if I find it, I can send it to you! :D

:tighthug: Your words always leave me speechless. Thank you.
I'm terribly sorry for the lateness of this reply, too. I just can't stand deleting some. I really want to take a stroll through your gallery sometime, too! Hopefully on a day when I have a lot of time to just revel in words and emotions :love:. But thank you, again, for the comments! I'm just sorry I'm so sporadic!
