A poem about stillbirth and infertility.
 
 
 
Childless Still Remains

Smiles weave unprofitable gain,
consumed by milk-fire desire.
Smiles hide whispering lies
as blistering bubbles conspire.

Mother's waiting anxiously,
longing for his birth.
Mother's going crazy
over Stillborn's lack of mirth.

Baby lies within the mire
as Depleted wanders aimless.
Baby fuels milk-fire desire,
'neath the tombstone nameless.

Within the maddening cache
of diseased beguiling bane,
within the barren empty
Childless still remains.
