I whisper thoughts
while my coffee goes cold,
the madness is stronger
than my coffee ...

Bones rattle inside my head
while my lipstick refuses to shine,
there is nothing I can do except
grow accustomed to the things;

I can not change.

My purse is filled with tears
and my pockets hold nothing.

But the wind whistles and the birds call for spring....

    Maple, I hope this is nominated - I am currently unable to do so - but let me tell you something. Your pockets will never be empty while you have words like this rattling around in them.

    Love always,

    Miss Andrea :)
    Hope all is as well as it can possibly be.
    Your poem conveys a message, that when we are 'empty' the important thing is that the birds call for buds to blossom.
    Much warmth
    Michael x :)
