But only another birth"

I stole the galaxies from the skies and fashioned myself a dress.

I borrowed Jupiter to make a new bouquet because I liked it best.

I put the ocean tides into my hair of crystalline time.

Now I was beautiful enough to be a bride.

Very interesting concept. I love the imagery you used, especially within the first stanza. I think this piece is great, just like all of your work! Keep writing and do the world a favor :)
