Spiritual Starfish

Asalamu Alaykom,

I've been searching for---
no, not for---
I've been searching
a spiritual starfish

Among many exes
I was surprised to see
one exo
skeletal friend
supportive; protective;
mine.  For me.

It was injured in the move---
the moves of many---
and from my immobility.
Yet it survived and thrived
ready to grow another limb of

Together, he ---
or she---
(I'm not sure which and
I'm too shy to pry)
We two are going through
these seas to seize
what we might

Just a woman with inabilty
and a spiritual starfish
growing bigger, stronger
each limb growing longer
even if by chance
I break

Together we regenerate
