CLOTS, LEAKS AND THE CRAMPS STRIKE: Poem by Parvathy Ramachandran

Painting: contemporary art painting by Zlatko Music

Phenomenal,biological and the need it is.
A women only would pretty feel it.
The very cycles experience, she in her life-
The clots, the leaks, the cramps and the strikes.

Let it, for it too is a vent-
For so many pent up emotions.
The pain experienced once in every month-
Can uplift your mind and hold you strong.

You feel the gush of random beats!
Reminds you can, when rest pulls you down.
Let the spirit raise and tears flow;
But never hold you back, in locks.

Push,push and push but lie calm!
For only you can celebrate your existence.
And let you live in joy,warmth and ecstasy-
Letting the clots, leaks and cramps strike!

Parvathy Ramachandran
