21 Day Challenge | Day 11 | I Almost Forgot

11. I Almost Forgot

I almost forgot today.
I took a hot bath without
thinking twice,
drank my tea without comment.

I almost forgot today.
I took a regular multivitamin,
and didn’t notice that it
didn’t
smell like vanilla
as do the prenatal vitamins.

I almost forgot today.
I had a glass of wine with dinner,
its ruby tones did not remind me
of the blood that signaled the end
of the life within me.

I almost forgot today
that I had been pregnant.
And the guilt was nearly overwhelming.
