April 22 the last time I bled

June 9 conquered all thoughts in my head

10 weeks later you wound up dead


July 5 the day I turned 22

I took a life

Not with a gun

Not with a knife

I plead guilty

I'm not on the run

Inside me was a daughter or son


As you passed on

Sweltered and heaving

I lost all consciousness

A dark cloud formed above me

as I began grieving

My body grew numb

I felt no pain

Only emptiness inside

as my eyes dripped rain


January 27 you would have been born

But circumstance of life has left me torn

Now all that's left to do is mourn
