Puddles of Pain…

Puddles of Pain…

twisted torso of torsion.

ugly uterus untrustworthy.

a sea of infertility.

blood bleeding brightly

into

puddles of pain.

my fifth day still twisting

turning into knots this-

ugly uterus untrustworthy

due to endometriosis.

heating pads, electric blanket and tylenol

mere essentials for survival as my body rebels

attacking me monthly.

Surreal stabbing pain

Surreal stabbing pain

my Uterus is bothering me again.

Endometriosis rears it’s ugly head.

I feel a cramping sharpened stabbing feeling

in my abdomen back and thighs.

and the monthly agony of bleeding is  back,

There are no words for this type of pain except for

overwhelming…..surreal stabbing pain

my uterus is bothering me again.

Book Giveaways Still Ongoing

My most recent release is a poetry chapbook on the topic of Endometriosis. Endo affects as many as one in ten women during puberty up until their childbearing years are over. It is a very painful condition with lack of research being funded for what causes the disease-although there are many theories-and there is no known cure.

My book of poems is written from the viewpoint of having this invisible illness and having its severe form stage IV-four.

Endo impacts a woman’s ability to bear children, it can cause infertility and miscarriages.

Anyways, I am giving away one signed autographed copy through the Good Reads program.
