Once upon a day

she would have kept it in

and have said nothing

 

about the loss of baby

and the way

he treated her

 

for losing

and maybe if things

had been different

 

she’d have been able to cope

and have said

what the heck

 

but she couldn’t

not now

not now he’d done

 

what he did

and with her

of all people

 

and with her little helper

with the small aid

she can chill out

 

and stare out

of the window

at the passing people

 

and not give

a fuck

but upon a time

 

what is real

creeps in and through

and she can visualize

 

baby there

in her arms

still born

 

and without breath

but still hers

and still loved

 

and even

at the most

pissed out

 

or drugged out moments

baby seeps

into her mind

 

and she wants

nothing more

but to hold her closer

 

and love her more

as she had before.
