Motherhood – Part I – by E.N. LOIZIS

Being a mother is the most amazing, beautiful, fulfilling task I have ever taken over. It makes life prettier, more meaningful and joyful.

It is also fucking terrifying…




No-one warns you of the fear

simmering underneath your skin

like a fever

burning you up

No one tells you of the nightmares

when wide-awake

when deep in sleep

So how could you know before…

…before you were a walking heart

pulsating in full display

all red and soft

all tender tissue

exposed flesh

pumping blood

No one says

you no longer belong to yourself

When you learn how to love

with such abundance

such disregard

for your ego

everything becomes a gift

And you heart

-that mushy muscle,

that engine of love-

is growing bigger

with her every breath

They never tell you

nothing will ever feel safe

you’ve seen too much of the world,

you know

They never say

bedtime stories fight your monsters

walking in the shadows

creeping in the sun

You weild the axe

that ends the Wolf

You tear into its flesh
