Menopause

Treacherous body

Denied one more try

Maligned inside sorry

I stopped asking why

Shorted what’s mine 

I’ve only known worry

Yet survived the fire 

That sums up my story

Faint lines trickle 

Creases align

28 day cycles 

Now out of time 

Turned inside out

Red runs no more

Time is a trickster 

With greater in store

Womb to the tomb

I will endure

There is no promise 

Only the ache

Once more I have given

More than I’ll take
