pull, rally (pregnancy #1)

for a while there

with a pain in my chest

two lines on test

i knew a you was there.


i was full once

alive with another life

and my blood pulled and rallied

i wondered in my heart.


you do not let us dream

so heart-fully in vain.

there is a place in your room

where blood pulls and rallies

for things such as these.


breaking so deep

makes us stronger

and softer

all at once.
