    Sometimes It's Sad Inspiration

    Not every inspiration is a good one...I was inspired to write something after I miscarried my baby earlier this month. This may not look like poetry to you, but the way it flows is poetry to me.   We never knew you, and I guess we never will...my little Jessica...
