child

by valentinestavrou

this new-born love

hatched within my belly;

my body does what it had longed for;

milk pipes from my core

as you arrive,through my blood,

to this world that’s meant to father you.

You’ve been travelling for months, protected,

in a warm womb

swimming through my dreams and promises

and you’ve come,alas,

and you’ve offered a tiny handshake,

your unspoken promise to me;

forever,always.
