Poetry For the Aunt You Love to Hate

.

Haiku For My Shedding Uterus

.

Holiday of love

Emotions flowing freely

Also flowing: blood

.

Punctuate with care;

This, and grammar, are crucial.

F*cking period.

Ode to the Medicated Cycle

.

There was a determined young lady,

Who very much wanted a baby.

But there were only ten days

In her luteal phase,

And the meds made her go batshit crazy.

A Sonnet: In Appreciation of My Heating Pad

.

My heating pad is what I love the most.

It soothes my muscles when I’m feeling tense,

And heats me up like I’m a damn rib roast.

Clearly it’s worth the very small expense.

.

I bought it one day because I hurt my back,

I liked that I could use it dry or damp.

At times, my muscles still get out of whack,

But mostly it alleviates my cramps.

.

Its warm embrace helps keep my pain in check,

Without it, I’d perhaps be homicidal.

Today though, I’m a menstruating wreck;

I guess I’ll just stay home and take some Midol.

.

.

So, yeah.

Suck on THAT, Shakespeare.

.

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day.

.

I hope Cupid has more up his sleeve for you and yours than he did for me and mine.

I mean, I know I can’t be the only one who prefers chocolate, roses, and a night in with their lover to tampons, pain killers, and the company of cats and crap TV.

.

Can you feel the love tonight?ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Summertime Sadness

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
