A Sonnet For My Husband
by Alexandra Eaton

If you should see a light within my eye
So lovely, it like love to you doth seem,
Beware, my love, for I cannot deny
That once a month with loathing it doth gleam.
For love can change as hormones rage and turn
My tortured flesh until it seems unfair
That I with cramps and aches and bloating burn
While you, in all your comfort, just lie there.
For a man once viewed as my gallant night
Doth change, as once a month I only see
This paltry fool at whom I scream all night
Till he doth fetch me my Motrin IB.
     But do not fear, my love, and smile anon
     For love returns when PMS is gone.
