I Bleed! Poem by Mamata Bhatt

I Bleed!

Rating: 4.9


I am a woman and I bleed,
I bleed every month for four/five days,
A few days back I bled and got stain in my kurta,
I was a little bit scared because it was not my home but school I teach,
I immediately went to bathroom,
Called Prinsa to bring my bag so that I could use my pad,
My eyes ran as hyperloop to find soap so the stain would erase,
I applied soap in my kurta carefully not to wet other part of kurta immediately, and seeing stain gone I became happier,
I went to staff room said the coordinator, 'I needed ten minutes, '
He said, ' why? ' I found it little bit rude,
I felt like why he didn't get it,
But how would he get if I didn't tell him?
I took rest,
He came few minutes later,
I thought It's too early,
I was even worried if someone spying me through video,
I checked whether my suit got dried,
I couldn't go to the class; the students oh no! no!
I said I needed more time,
'Ok five, then come to the class, ' he said.
I checked whether the kurta had dried,
I was hesitant little bit, then I went with confidence.

I Bleed!

Really it is a very difficult/odd situation for girls and women. You have highlighted the situation very aptly in this poem. Very nicely crafted. Great share.

It feels painful from scratch but while you bleed three months a long that would be a causal . It was such nice narrative poem.

Wonderful I have told many times not to write about this subject. You have the eggs to do so

Part 5. The bleeding on the monthly periods is nothing, provided you do not bleed of you boldness, your positive outlook and your eagerness to live a life of your own. All the best, Mamata.
