The girl is a god with wolves in her chest
While she catches boys in her hair like birds.

Her flesh speaks the lore of a martyr in disguise
But she is no stone-skinned warrior.

She is water born and earth made
Like the pale peaks of waves
whose tongues lap at the fire.  

She reaches towards the sky
Hoping to warm her hands
All she finds is her own breath carved into air.

The girl is not a god, she is a hero
With birds nesting in her chest
While wolves braid her hair.

Wow, thank you! It's been sitting in my Sta.sh for about eight months because I didn't know what to do with it, I'm glad I posted it now :). I want to play with it a bit more and maybe work it in to a form. Any suggestions? :glomp: x

Honestly, I like it the way it is, the only change I would make would be to change "this: to "the" at the beginning of the poem to match with the title and the "the" beginning the last stanza.  Other than that, I think it's good the way it is. :)
