You became

Wrenched from a dream

Wrenched from oblivion

More than a concept

You became

 

A tiny little dot of a soul

Colourful. Deep. Hopeful.

Covered in smooth muscle and skin

You became

 

In the moment of our ecstasy

You became

Growing. Stretching out and still further

From that dot of a thought that you were

 

You became

In our moment of needy wanting

Of clamouring and cursing

Of dire love. A consuming kind.

You became

 

From your safe hiding place

Into a warm soft cocoon

Breathing in water, breathing in life

Rolling and kicking

You became

 

Resting in my heartbeat

Waking in my dreams

Growing in my wonder

Crying in my hope

I became. A mum.
