A Hormonal Meltdown


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Easily displeased
Quick to be disappointed
Crushed by weight gain and calcium depletion
Sagging breasts and a pear-shaped figure
Aching bones and aching patella
Stretch marks and varicose veins
Inadequate and solemn answers to questions
Sometimes too critical or aggressive
And a hormonal meltdown….


Keen intelligence yet detached humour
Mid age crisis; searching for eternal love
Zero tolerance to bull shit and attitude
Or laughing at herself
Sometimes a stranger even to herself
Hot flushes; fluctuating blood pressure
Progression from heels to flats…Occasionally
Missing a step while climbing or walking
And a hormonal meltdown….


Superior knowledge; experienced, affectionate,
Queer, funny yet tender and understanding by default
Echoing silences and self-castrations
Occasionally crossing over the line
As they inch towards reaching their prime
A cranky child; trapped in her skin fighting
A losing battle against age spots and wrinkles
They’re in menopause state of mind
Facing a hormonal meltdown….
