Give it up for pessimistic period poetryyy
Guys I need prayer. For a whole hour, in waves I'd be screaming at the top of my lungs in the worst pain of my life.

third degree agony

August 30, 2020



the heat burns my skin while i beg it for relief / clutching fire to soothe my pain / i shouldn't choke down so much medicine / but i need it to survive / without groaning out my torment / and i'm grateful / because it could be worse / it has been worse / but after a certain point / pain blinds me / to its future and its past
So I guess this makes me predictable because like every month I drop one or two pieces about cramps on you all. Welp, they say to write about what you know. *shrugs through the pain*

    Sometimes all you can do is pretend to smile through the pain XD but truly, pessimistic poetry is the best!

    That sounds so painful! I’ve never really gotten them that bad, but I have some friends that say they do. I’ll keep you in my prayers Anne, God bless :)

    Ugh, cramps are the worst! But, it’s amazing how you can take all that pain and turn it into beautiful poetry! I also love the title. It’s terrible, but smart.

    I love how you have no fear/shame in writing about this! A lot of us go through it and it's really relatable.
