YOU KNOW THAT MACHINE IN THE INCREDIBLES

WHERE THE LONGER YOU FIGHT IT

THE MORE IT LEARNS YOUR TRICKS

I SWEAR THAT’S WHAT MY UTERUS DOES

LIKE “OH YOU’RE TRYING TEA AND HEAT PACKS?!?!? WELL YOU TRIED THAT LAST TIME, NOW I KNOW AND I WON’T BE FOOLED!!!”

Once a Month

A knife is slowly sliding

Across my pelvic area

Letting my blood seep out

Into a puddle around me.

No, someone is punching

My abdomen, making

Me never want to leave

The warmth of my bed.

The cold floor underneath

My feet causes daggers

To enter my abdomen

In the form of cramps.

I’m angry, then sad.

Tears fall randomly,

Even when I’m glad.

Once a month this

Emotional storm

Showers chaos on

My life, causing

Strife in the pits

Of my soul. making me

Feel close to death.

When will this hell

Subside?
