The Woman Who Bleeds

For days every month I bleed For years and decades I bleed For the love of life I bleed For the duty of wife I bleed For my future heir I bleed For being a mother I bleed I turn a giver of life when I bleed But why am I dirty when I bleed?

A Sailor Sailed Away

Out on the waters he would sail Sending me little gifts without fail Letters would pop up in the mail Even on days going white with hail Then all went calm and silent, he was frail No photos of whales and their tail No holiday and scenery from the rail No stories about chalice or…

Sleeping Beauty

Breathe into my soul a part of your life And unlock the slumber that captures me For I’ve been waiting for years to be your wife And wake up in your arms for I am yours to be

Love Never Dies

The strong arms of this world pulls us apart They hear me not but I shout, “He is my part” For years he lay with me and here forever he lies He is dead for years but I shout, “Love never dies”
