Very sad and emotional poem.

I can hear my heart beating
I’m so scared, so terrified
My breath is coming quick now
Small puffs that float in the cold air like smoke
My arms hurt, I’ve been pushing for so long now
Yet my effort is wasted, there’s nothing I can do
He’s already taken it, the one thing I could call my own
Something I was proud of having
And now it’s gone.
This isn’t how I imagined it
This is not the guy in my dreams
I barely even know him
Yet he gets what so many others were denied.
My throat hurts from attempting to scream
But his hand is clasped over my mouth
No one can hear me.
But I don’t stop fighting
How could I?
I have to fight for what is rightfully mine
For if I give up, I’ll never forgive myself.
And it hurts
It hurts so bad I’m crying
Someone should have told me it would be this painful.
But no one expects this to happen to them
It’s something that only happens to others
Not someone like me.
I wonder when it’ll end
It feels like forever
And the truth about forever…
Is that it never really ends.
