healer of humankind
i am stardust
compacted and chiseled into an ancient
protector of hearts and esteem.
dozens of bodies piled up on my two shoulders.
my only intent, for them to taste the sun
so they can beam the light of day through
pores once clogged with bitterness.
i am the alpha female
putting up a fight.
defending our honor with
a heart so ready it'll swallow you whole.
my weapon has a pulse.
it breathes and it's beating and it's alive and it's
open, wide open.
ready to receive and replenish
