Tell me how many clinks
                              you hear
when you smile
with a grave’s peace borrowed.

The creaks of a swing,
and the shards of broken china,
sing your childhood riddles
on nights the storm would knock.

                                   Stars belong to clouds,
                                                just as fate is in love with time.


A box full of buttons
and a handful of sand,
count how long you kept your fingers crossed
from behind the pleats of your summer skirt

as we watched our thoughts set
            with an imaginary sun.
It's amazing how much sadness eyes can hold.

The title just came out of nowhere. I guess it just matched the piece. :3

Okay. Hold up. I need to stop here and comment. This was beautiful. And it's one of the only poems I have stopped to read from one of my writers groups. It's really great. Keep up the good work. This really brightened my evening. Happy Early/Present/Late Halloween.
