Nine Months

Picture perfect in a frame

Look twice, each time never looks the same

Squint eyes tight

The smile, sunlit bright

Never showing signs of the fight

Hiding it in your mind

Friends dig deep but can't find--

The answers to your arguments, constant fights with time

Your opinions, never worth a dime

Always punishment for the crime

Digging a hole you'll never escape

Never seeing all, ignoring the size and shape--

The initial shock you took so well

Smile grew dim, belly starts to swell

Screwed over sideways, no story to tell

Look around, all alone

Backstabbers, give such tone

Picture perfect in a frame

Nine months later the baby came.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sometimes things come unexpectidly, and things change.  Thanks for the help Pat xo. So many people I know are having babies,babies, having babies, seems unreal.
