Changed a couple words

tension and muscles and strain
contorting and fighting against my own body
no sleep for hours; i ache now
feet up next to the clock

r e l i e f ?

capsules of doctor-issued expectation
sticking inside my harsh inhalations
drinking down hope

womanhood is taxing

it is not night anymore
but it is still dark
eyes closed - no - remain
another breath and then

s t i l l n e s s
Cramps suck, amirite?

    Hey, quick question? So, I've been going through this super rough writer's block. I mean, I haven't written anything really since my definition pieces and those were supposed to be to help me get over my block. I'm currently working on a #appreciationpost, but I want to write some good stuff! I've tried taking my own advice, but I'm just not getting inspired *cries*. Do you have any tips, o partner in crime? :) <3

    Was that mean? I'm just trying to help and I just really don't want to make anyone upset . . . *hides under covers*

    Replying: Yeah it's a tricky situation. That's like the third attention-seeking post she's made, and I think that you said the right thing. I don't think it was offensive, but obviously I can't speak for her. Do you think I was offensive or "fueling the fire?" I totally get that the point isn't to be "popular" but also understand her need for validation.

    Replying: Thanks for the comment on my profile picture. I found it and I thought it represented me pretty well at the moment.

    ‘Womanhood is taxing’ this is so true! I love this poem, short and sweet.

    Love the new edits! Also, that's so weird about the Q&As. *shrugs*
