Amputation

by Kylie (follow)


amputation
My caption goes here.


Just arrived home after
4 days away
With my sister/friend
Trying to make sense
of her recent experience.

Cancer really sucks
It can happen so fast
And catch you unexpected
She has been tested
And is coping as best as she can.

She is glad she is not in a relationship
One breast less is enough of a trip
On your own
Without having to deal with
Others responses, maybe lovers responses.

Body image
Amputation
Phantom pain
Tears that rain
Again and again

Does this mean femininity is gone?
Is this a title for a new song?
How are women viewed who loose a breast
Are we defined by our bodily parts?
I hope not, what would be next?
