Oh Zoey. 
:faint:

Edited for clarity and cohesion.

Original:

... she cries,

obviously. Her hands, slim-fingered
and pale, so unlike yours, delicate
as bone-china, fist over; the rage
of an empty stomach, roaring
as a fire from her lips, two petals
that part to emanate such flames.

When a baby hasn't been fed, her
eyes, so wholly yours, tincture of
glee in that tumultuous hazel sea, 
at your bird-nest-hair and the raven-
wings resting under your eyes, 
((please baby please don't cry)).

When a baby hasn't been fed, when
she comes to your breast, her mouth
closes so close to your heart, each
swallow timed to your pulse: so fed,
her milky lips still tremble, whispering
a confession, an unworded prayer.

When a baby hasn't been fed, you 
know: no one will ever need 
you as nakedly as her.
