Complete Devastation

Hopelessness and anger boils vigorously inside
Two weeks of excitement destroyed and suddenly died
Positive energy for the duration for which we all tried
Foolish with assumptions of which appear I have now lied
Living in a dream and reality a nightmare
All I can do is sleep because reality I cannot bare
I longed for this to work and motherhood is my goal
But in my heart and body the pains taking its toll
I feel a wreck and bad luck not to blame no more
As I await a miracle to shine light on my black door
I beg you dear angels give me this one meaningful goal
Please God, I’ll take the worst labour if it helps sooth my throbbing soul
