Purple Heart

''Do you know that purple heart,
Always smiling on the sidewalk? ''
She said, her hands reaching to that part
Where her head was buried when she once broke.

''I've never seen that heart before,
But always knew it, it was mine,
Chanting spells at night outside my door,
Standing at my heels in every line.
