Stillborn

S ilence did haunt the delivery room
T ortured by labour forlorn
I nfant lay lifeless in saddening gloom
L imp but so perfectly formed
L ife was not meant to inhabit their girl
B arren, the pain mum endured
O nly the sobs of the dad split the still
R ipped, by what must be inured
(N ine months to make death? cruel's the word)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Based on my friends heartbreaking description, when she could finally talk about it. The only sound and clearest memory she has of this tragedy was dad's sobs.

    Amazing acrostic, pretty disturbing and haunting, no person should ever be able to feel this trauma. Thank you for sharing this lovely though depressing work.

    reminds me of parliment hill fields by Sylvia Plath though that is a miscariage. essentially though i suspose their just as heart breaking.
