A Magnetic Embrace

Your healing,
seemingly random,
barely understood,
as you intend.
Finding that fluttering life muscle
behind my dead eyes,
you palpate gently
until wisdom's heartbeat returns
These words,
these iron filings of my secret armour,
seek your magnetic orbit
and the grace of your embrace.
