In the Aftermath

miscarriage-pregnancy-loss-infertilityFive pregnancies, no children. Another miscarriage. There was no pain, no tell-tale signs of what was unfolding. Its appearance was my warning shot. It left me in shock. Then denial. Then perpetual numbness.

Now, heartbreak.

It’s an odd feeling, really. To experience a vibrant life slip out of your body. To know there was a moment in time you had two hearts. Then being barely able to feel the one that’s left.

I will lick my wounds.

With bloodstained hands, I will hold this burden square upon my shoulders and make my way through. And soon, life will go on. Almost as if nothing ever happened. Almost.
