Menstruational Cramps

By Anonymous

My eyes closed,
I say to myself
Someone must have placed a heavy metal object on the top of my stomach,
not knowing I’m a human who feels PAIN!
And that person in my mind keeps telling me
that he has kept it gently there.
I say, ‘Hey! It’s a metal object and it hurts anyway!’
Gathering up some energy,
I go to my table and sit in a chair
Skimming through the pages of my diary,
I try to write a poem,
when suddenly something kicks me from the inside,
keeps making me suffer until I stop.
No wonder I was trying to write about PERIOD CRAMPS!
There you go again!
These cramps are not just pain to my body
but some reminders that keep sneering at me saying,
“No, you can’t do that!”
Believe me,
Sometimes they are worse than this society that reminds me of my boundaries.
Anyway, five days pass by
and then I say goodbye.
Seeing my grin,
It decides to remind me,
“My pal, don’t you worry
Cause I will be back again.”
