Again


At the Doctors.
Hoping.
Praying.
Expectant.
Due in June.
A June bug baby.

On the screen.
At the monitor.

An empty sac.

The empty sac
Was just like
My Heart.
Empty.

A miscarriage.
Again.

I stood and turned
And left,
Walking past the
Swollen bellies
In the waiting room.

Swollen with waiting
Waiting for something
I wouldn't have.
At least not right now.

Tears slipped down my cheeks,
My heart was swollen with grief
Yet my womb was empty.

Again.


This is my blog. My name is Megan Abbott.
