the gate

my healed chestwound

transformed into a gate

where i receive love from

where i give love from

and i

care for you

i care for you

split into many parts

splattered light beams into prisms

that will reunite

if you

care for me

and then ill care for you

didnt used to be so needy

just more broken than normal

proud self sufficiency

my silhouette is oval

it is a gate

i can

care for you from

i care for you

you care for me
