a poem

our breakup was easy.
you left when I got pregnant.
and I didn’t miss you at all.
In fact the 2+ years without you have been so simple,
so easy, so joy-filled.
Seriously- this time that should be challenging
has been better than any I remember.
at least since my tweens began…
Cause let’s face it- you are plain messy.
And you bring an emotional roller coaster.
And, ugh, now you are back.
And I know I must accept you,
for reasons beyond my control,
at least for some years.
As every woman does.
Oh period, my period.
