hormones rip soft hearts

all monthly petals counted, plucked,

womb waste trickles down hidden duct

“empty again”- your uterus instructs.


awkward circumstance, awful ache,

calendars created for womens sake

  • hundreds of eggs must break.


society censors, body talk taboo,

medical history unwritten, not a clue

– is shadow-moon really lover to you?


hormones rip soft hearts to tatters

– temper tantrums, tears splatter,

men squeamish, sensitive matters.


belittled for menses blood clot

petty persecution, unhappy lot,

  • romantic dreams of Camelot.


creator planned, motherhood part,

lovingly moulded, maternal heart

–  special purpose, sure from start.
