If you're a bird, I'm a bird

It's a different feeling,
To feel another heart in you
To feel laughter on your neck
Another breath on your chest
To fill up with something, and fall silent
To think of your entire life as leading up to this moment
To feel the combined force of a past well lived,
a present warm and soft,
and a future of possibilities, in one embrace
To behave like mad lunatics in public,
making an occasional old lady smile,
and whisper to her old husband.
To crave for more time,
more hours in a day,
more brain cycles to talk about things
To talk of friends, and childhood,
and being lonely weirdos,
and touch noses.
It's a different feeling to be married.
