Poems About Abortion
by Melisa Steele
Here is one of my poems about abortion titled,
Darling, I wonder all the time who you would have been,
Sometimes I can hear you laughing and see your little grin.
I snap out of it for a moment, I'll never feel your touch,
The guilt of my decision hurts me so very much.
My heart bleeds and my crime bears me such shame,
Precious child I don't even know your name.
I didn't even say goodbye, I feel so selfish,
Now I long to cradle you, it's my one wish.
Such a wondrous gift that would have been so great,
But my choice ended up being your terrible fate.
Oh, what have I done?
The life once inside of me is now gone.
Why did I let myself feel the pressure?
I could have given birth to such a little treasure.
Was this supposed to be what was best?
A solution to the problem but it feels like a mess.
My soul feels torn, I feel such regret,
Not a day has gone by that I haven't wept
I'm so sad inside, there's such emptiness and pain,
I wish I could turn back the clock and do it all again.
I don't even know what the worst part is,
What a mistake, how could I have done this?
I'm truly sorry; I want you to know,
Darling, you're gone but how I love you so.
