DETOUR


There is a longing in my heart

For another child

Another Soul

Joining us Earthside

My body

Cringes

By the sheer thought of it

Cries out

Contracts

Reminds me of my promise

To trust her

When she speaks

This one

Needs to find its way

Through another woman

Please take a detour

To us my love

I’m happy to raise another child

AND I can’t provide

The body

Or the milk

This time.
