~ Tick ~

Each cell passed out of this body, shed,

Another day which I have bled.

Potential child, who won’t be mine,

But at least my ‘girl parts’ still work fine.

With sorrow colored in drops of red,

The pain is more, than in my head.

An infinite sadness, an imagined face,

But only emptiness takes its place.

Only an egg, and Nature’s price,

Unfruitful, lonely sacrifice.

But not un-mourned, no, this I see…

Will I ever a blessed mother be?

The tick is faint within this mind,

But with each cycle, the clock’s unkind.

Distant dreams, passed in a woman’s blood,

And I wonder…sometimes…about Motherhood.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
