(so after writing my very rambly blog about my first taste of motherhood,
i thought this rambly poem about new mum-messy-life-baby love-emotions everywhere-who am I is appropriate to go up on the blog, enjoy c: )
Dwindling dreams, poetry ripped at the seams.
Odd socks, time tick tocks. Mind – on the rocks.
Sleep deprived, we’re so dead and so alive.
We need sleep, we’re in too deep…
Heaps and heaps of dirty laundry,
Bland and boring – can’t be me.
Consumed by LOVE, lost in the role of mother.
Can’t help but whisper; ‘I love her, I love her.’
Anxiety and confidence go BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.
Clutching her close when I enter the room.
She radiates my heart with excitement.
My soul brightens. Her journey, her story, all written~
Yes, I’m smitten, yes, I’m overwhelmed.
It’s chaotic, it’s beautiful, roaming in realms
I’ve never entered before, I’m worrying non-stop
Out of control car driving into writer’s block
Over and over so I’m throwing down the caffeine.
It burns my throat, I’m a tramp and a queen.
So there I am, back again, remembering
That this has always been me from the beginning.
No sense, nonsense, splatter, pop, burst, bright
Each day a dance, a walk, a run, a fight or flight.
Now shut the hell up and go to bed – GOODNIGHT.
