1. A space once filled, empty again.

Empty...

Deep inside in my cold frozen heart I feel only emptiness, 

Blood races through my veins,

My rigid muscles tense up,

A space once filled, empty again.

Lifeless...

My frail arms hang by my sides too petrified to do anything else,

My tear ducts fill up with fresh new salty tears,

My breath is caught in my throat,

A space once filled, empty again.

Numb...

Goosebumps formed along the thin almost translucent skin of my arms and around the pale stretched skin of my mid rift,

My heart aches for what I've lost,

All this love in my heart but no-one to give it to,

A space once filled, empty again.

Deafened...

My ears stung from the harsh deafening sounds of raised panicked voices surrounding the room,

A life lost in the darkness of time,

A heart no longer beating,

A space once filled, empty again.

Heartbroken...

My body felt numb as it knew it was alone again,

My heart shattered into a million tiny pieces,

Scattered into the world of regret, longing and anger,

A space once filled, empty again.

Confused...

I let my fingertips gently trace the pale skin of my belly where once there was a small life form; my small life form,

If only I could shut down my heart, my feelings and start again,

Tears trickle down my cheeks and drop off my chin,

A space once filled, empty again.

Hurt...

I sunk onto the floor leaning against the wall, my heart racing in my ears,

I'm lost, waiting to be found,

How can I love something I don't even know,

A space once filled, empty again.

Terrified...

I would have to tell him, the life form’s farther,

Another heart I would have to disappoint,

Another fire I would extinguish,

A space once filled, empty again.

Helpless...

Staring into the abyss I knew there was nothing I could do now, absolutely nothing at all,

Time may pass, but I will never forget,

A simple event with catastrophic results,

A space once filled, empty again.

Alone...

All the time I was carrying the life form I knew I wasn’t alone, that’s not the case now,

Was it my fault?

Did I do something wrong?

A space once filled, empty again.

Destroyed...

The life form would never live, never breathe, never learn and never smile,

A lifetime of love that never happened,

A great mystery,

A space once filled, empty again.

Sore...

My body ached knowing it had lost something great, something unique, something special,

Something that had never happened,

Something lost,

A space once filled, empty again.

Tormented...

Tears trickled down my cheeks slowly in the knowledge that life would never be the same again,

Empty...

1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage.   

A space once filled, empty again.
