Born Dead

Newborn infant
Hacked and torn
Reckless instant
Now forlorn
Devastation
Empty womb
Null gestation
Born too soon
Bloody-handed
Empty-eyed
Broken-hearted
Child inside
Crying monster
Inside out
No one wants her
Full of doubt
Full of regret
Full of pain
Try to forget
Love again
Nothing happens
Never does
She just laughs and
Is what was

  1. powerful, poignant, painful, pitiful

    a very moving subject you’ve written about and I’ve had to read it over and over

  2. Sometimes feelings so rare are comprehended so nicely that even such amount of pain finds beautiful expression.
    But it actually is sad to whomsoever it happens
