Omitted Everyday Magic:
1. The floral wrappings on my sanitary pads convey that my blood is magic that needs to be concealed in a fragrant cellulose sheet before a farewell into the dustbin. Every drop is a cushion for a spirit wanting to come back to life or probably live the very same life I constantly frown upon.
2. Ink has been my best friend, so has pencil lead. Buds growing from the nibs are an extension to my spirit, I liberate effortlessly through scribbling. If the ink dries out you'll find words written with mascara on my lashes.
3. I yearn to kiss the rain back just the way it makes love to a part of me that lies hidden under the outline of my body, untraceable from ages. I realise the rain doesn't want anything back, it's happy to make me alive after a long tarnished summery journey. I meditate under the falling drops that furiously try to penetrate my skin but end up skiing over me. I open my mouth hoping it may quench my thirst. It doesn't though it tastes sweet.
4. I soak myself in a glass of moonlight, thus glowing by an extra measurement the next day. My womb prepares for a new birth under the prism of this white luminescence. A woman's vagina has a nervous system of its own with no room for miscarriage of dreams whatsoever. This is the track where I run naked with poetry.
5. Some days I worry I'll run out of poetry wondering what will I be left with then. 'Nothing', I reply to myself. But somehow I force myself to find hope and rest on the frail, dry twigs of fear. If language ever ditches me, I'll cook poetry, I'll paint stories, I'll brew verses, I'll bake paragraphs- but I'll find a way back home from the peak of every failure. -Word Mermaid🍃
