13 Ways of Looking at a Miscarriage

May 1, 2018

I.
The parents breathe woe
The infant no longer does
The bond is broken


II.
At least it was soon
I wish your other life well
But I still love you


III.
Today you left her
Today you left us alone
Will I ever cry

 

IV.
Your name would have been
Braeleigh Kae Walton, gorgeous
It has been two days


 

V.
Two months into life
Eight months until your new life
Time is strange that way

 

VI.
An empty vessel
How could someone so lovely
Be taken so quick

 

VII.
I have waited years
Now I must wait even more
But never for you

 

VIII.
Sometimes I think of
How beautiful you would be
Or you would have been

 

IX.
Do you think of us
Wherever you may be now
Can you think there still

 

X.
You are so much more
Than the tiny box you’re in
And I won’t forget

 

XI.
I hope that someday
I will be so lucky to
Have a girl like you

 

XII.
Fate is for suckers
You are gone because of luck
Bad luck is still luck

 

XIII.
No bottle can help
No nicotine can save us
Cancer in the void
