Do you also feel the same?
Or unlike me, do you think it’s not required?
I am going through those days of the month
I am irritated, frustrated and anxious
No I don’t have other things running through my mind
But I do know why my moods are so intense and high
Like me, do you also feel the same?
And an overwhelmed attitude
Or unlike me, do you feel like that this is just fake?
I do not hate or dislike people around me
But I direct my anger at them, in the best way possible
At times they burst in double range of me
Or at times they think I have gone insane and leave me aside
Now how do I tell them that I am going through those days of the month!
Like me do, you also feel the necessity to talk to your companions and explain things to them?
Or unlike me, do you think it’s just a stupid conversation?
Keeping my cool and swinging moods in control
I have initiated the conversation with an “eh listen…
I am in my thosedays known as menstrual days
Unhealthy, sick and in pain
I become disaster, unknowingly
Now you know the story
Spare me those reactions, knowingly!
Cuddle me, comfort me
But honey, don’t return harsh actions with harsh actions
Bear with me, be with me
But don’t give me reactions that are angry!”
Now tell me,
Like me, do you agree about the same?
Or unlike me, do you think I am just jotting down fiction?
