On November 7, Megan Fox’s new book of poetry titled Pretty Boys Are Poisonous went on sale.
And people were quick to realize in one of the poems that Fox was talking about a miscarriage she endured. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Fox is currently engaged to Machine Gun Kelly.
It’s believed Fox and MGK were just over two months pregnant when they experienced the loss. “There is an ultrasound by your side of the bed,” she writes in one poem. “10 weeks and 1 day.”
Another poem discussed saying goodbye to their unborn child. “I close my eyes and imagine…Holding you tight against my chest. […] I will pay any price tell me please what is the ransom for her soul?”
Fox confirmed the loss while talking with Good Morning America about her new book of poems.
“I’ve never been through anything like that in my life,” she admitted. “I have three kids, so it was very difficult for both of us and it sent us on a very wild journey together and separately…trying to navigate, ‘What does this mean?’ and ‘Why did this happen?'”
Fox is currently a mom of three, Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 7, whom she shares with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green.
The book also details several other difficult moments in her life, including several physical and emotionally abusive relationships:
“Mornings after you would hurt me / I would wake up and make your coffee / Put on a sweatshirt so you wouldn’t have to look at the bruises you left … If anything I’m lucky, imagine all the girls who don’t get hurt, for laughing at another boy’s jokes, how ineffectual and undesirable they must feel.”
As Fox told RollingStone, “These poems were written in an attempt to excise the illness that had taken root in me because of my silence.”
