Forever Your Parasite - Poem by Akshaya Pawasker
I was floating in your womb,
warm amniotic fluid bathing me.
A dream, I dreamt with open eyes,
of this safety cocoon.
I dream it often, to coil back.
My umbilicus though devoid
and your placenta shriveled,
a phantasmal cord still attached.
The Wharton's jelly dried,
arteries and veins clamped.
I breathe to survive, yet
I hold on to the cord for life.
Like an unborn fetus,
forever your parasite.
Mother, my shining star
Your breath, keeps me alive.
