menstruation moon

the teeth of air
biting this brown skin
all evening i am
chronicling in mind
parasites of love
but no lover
steal and strangle
these treasures
it’s not my fault when
i am crashing on bed

early morning when
i start to suffer from
the bad temper of
the menstruation moon
i am bleeding more

    I love how you turned a terrible situation such as having your period into something poetic. Good job
