sharp pain with every move.
Hearing beeps and alarms at all hours
blood pressure cuff squeezing my arm
needles poking my hands to check my blood.
A new baby laying next to me
helpless and utterly dependent on me for life.
Time for me to pee
please don’t hurt, I silently pray.
My movements are sluggish and I think in slow motion.
Time to go home and introduce baby girl to big sister,
be a mother of two.
I’m still not all here emotionally or physically
But life will fall into a new routine
and this fog will lift.
