A Poem by Nadia Zahran

I can still hear the crying

I can feel you inside me, but ripped apart

Not a part of me


It was so painless, that procedure

It was as if nothing happened

It was as if I couldn’t see the gleam in your eyes

Even though they weren’t there-they weren’t yet there

But I see them

And I could smell that fresh scent on your head that was never formed

And I always thought this wasn’t a big deal

I always thought the physical pain would be difficult to bear

But it was painless, only in physicality

There was nothing painless about it

The pain reaches inside of me years later and I feel it

I feel it for you, because I never gave you the chance to feel it for yourself

Never gave you a second thought and now all i have are second thoughts

Racing in my brain-

Imprints of destruction carry my thoughts and I’m angry

Angry at you for making me feel this way, but more angry at myself for thinking this would be simple
