Upon my alabaster shoulder blade

Perches a mauve and pewter cherub

Her sapphire eyes

Are compassionate - she protects me with her aura of empathy; she keeps my secrets.

Hazy wings curl around her body;

Wrapping her in molten silver

Created by ink flowing in luscious curves across flesh.

She is my guardian.

Poetess; healer.

She is the embodiment of freedom

Etched upon my back.

A sign of faith; a mark of trust.

Crafted in colour and sealed with the promise

Of mystical glory
