My Life For Hers - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

My frenzied blood waxed molten to ice,
heart melted to stone.
Fear was forgotten,
as her screams stirred the heavens-
and gouged self-preservation free of me.
I leapt to her aid,
and took the bullet to heart,
the roaring and pounding in my ears receding farther and farther,
till I found myself in a different place
looking down at my glowing tear-kissed face.
I sighed content,
because she cradled me at her breast-bone
Erasing the desert of her desertion
