    The Unfair Fight

    It was an unfair fight,
    a struggle of death and life.
    He waged war throughout the night,
    I defended him off past the morning light.

    No choice was given,
    as he to my heart did riven.
    Made vulnerable I was for the taken,
    why did he choose my soul to be forsaken?

    He released the binds,
    I into freedom then ran to find.
    Although unwillingly I lost to his might,
    I had no choice for this war was an unfair fight.

    I can really feel the frustration and hurt involved when someone made the fight 'unfair'.If the fight was unfair, make the recovery YOURS and come out the winner. Nothing upsets bullies and toughs as much as seeing their targets get on just fine without them.

    Many hugs to help you feel better!

    Btw, really love the "visual" of your poem with shorter lines lining up above the longer ones.

    Thanks Acy for the compliments and good wishes.

    Apparently the message I am trying to convey in this poem is getting lost. Believe me you aren't the only one to think this poem is about bullies or being bullied. However, it is about a sexual assault and the internal struggle during the assault to try and not give up. Then later after giving up and realizing I can not win this battle I simply ask, why me. Then the end is about a life long struggle to transition from victim to survivor spurred by the acceptance of losing the war but winning the life long battle.

    I hope that makes sense.
