A Woman Contains (a Poem)

A woman contains a mind

that weighs reason,

that absorbs and evaluates

and then discards.


A woman contains a heart

that pumps blood,

that can love,

that can be broken.


A woman contains blood

that flows with life force,

that leaks out through cracks,

that kills in its absence.


A woman contains a womb

that bleeds,

that holds pain,

that gives life.


A woman contains a soul

that senses another’s energy

and gives hers away

until there is no more.
