2 small years ago

it was just 2 small years ago
but so much has changed
we have brought another child into the world

he is breathing
he is standing
he is talking
he is laughing
(it is strange to think he has not always been here)

but just 2 small years ago
on this very day
(i remember because it was the date that i came into the world)
my body reminded me that it no longer housed a child
but was perhaps cruelly getting ready for another

my damn body-
my betrayer
my betrayed

it was a devastating day
and it was just 2 small years ago

perhaps that is why
i am just not in the mood for cake
