Poem A Day #7/ heartbeat


 


Wet marble floor


Nine months pregnant


It happened so fast


I tried to protect her


She still hit the toilet


Stuck on the floor


Unable to yell for help


My little jumping bean stopped dancing


Not one tiny movement


the entire drive to the hospital


I prayed, begged, pleaded with the Gods


To please let my baby girl be okay


As I lay in the bed waiting for the nurse


The texts with whatever her name was at the time


Were more important


It was my fault


you left the floor soaking wet after your shower


My jumping jellybean still hadn’t moved


The nighttime is when she always danced


and did gymnastics


Finally, the understaffed nurse was able to hook up the monitor.


Two rivers flowed from my eyes.


Music to my ears.


My little jumping jellybean’s heartbeat.


Music to my ears.


 


****grrrr tried to revise and now my patterned format is messed up
