I love you
Your extraordinary courage
And capability
In the face of adversity
But when I bled our child

Into the toilet
To mix with piss
And Domestos
Your desire to fix things
Suffocated me like coal gas

Your presence a thick blanket
That lay
On my breath
Reminding me how my useless body
Took the life of a baby
