you're disgusting.
i hope you know that every time you show your face,
i cringe, collapse into rage.

you flay my body with cutting board scissors
and laugh at the sight of my blood.
it's everywhere, staining everything.
my clothes are ruined,
splotched with your dirty curse.
i can't ignore you
when you're so persistent,
grinding me like coffee beans
to grit beneath your boots.

i'm a shipwreck. you're the bottom of the ocean,
suffocating everything.
i collapse into bathroom stalls
like a rag doll,
falling on my knees and begging for mercy.

you're the reason i have medication.
i swallow pill after pill,
but they don't let me forget you.
i feel you within me,
twisting, pulling at my guts.

there's some idea out there
that women are like snow-capped strawberries,
but you are the part of me
that releases the bitter, razor-edged leaves.
you cut.

my mom tells me i'm being melodramatic.
it's just a period, after all.
did

did i just write an entire poem about being on your period?

...

an angst poem for every girl out there who's familiar with the multitude of b.s. that comes with owning a uterus! sometimes i don't even know what i'm thinking. i'm most likely gonna scrap this because it's so weird. sheesh. though it's kind of funny how dramatic it is. i'm gonna go sleep for ten years. i don't want school tomorrow please let it snow a foot or two tonight so i don't have to go.

EDIT: ALIKJUHFLOIKJLHDFSCNSLKJDHFEIQKWA FRONT PAGE WHAT THE HECKY MAN

i just i just what i am speechless right about now. thank you so much for this! i never expected this poem, of all things, to get anywhere! but i really appreciate it and your comments have been hilarious! :heart:

btw it did not snow a foot or two last night and i had to go to school. but there's gonna be a big storm tomorrow so there's hope of cancellation. huzzah! :la:

Aw, don't be scared! I'm not gonna sugarcoat it, periods really do suck. But you're tough and it's nothing you can't handle. We all have to get 'em, so you've got to make the most of it. haha and this is really dramatic, too. :)
