Pink and Blue

A miscarriage is a dreadful experience that unleashes grief, guilt and regrets upon a woman

Dark red blood streams down,
meets the sky blue tiles
with a deafening silence.

A piece of me follows;
ends on the same blue tiled floor,
a pink blob with an off-white apparition
just seeing the beginning of existence.

I pick up the little martyr...
blink at the blob —
a surreal moment of recognition.

Petrification saves me
from crumbling down
under the shower
as I watch it sail to the drain.


I double up, choking in disbelief.

Back between the comfort of my pillow
and my sleeping baby,
I liquify.

The womb weeps.

Pain
rains...

We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
