They Took My Everything From Me
March 18 2012 my world was turned upside down. My boyfriend was caught with a gun in the state with the strictest gun laws in the country. I've been with this man everyday for four years. He is my other half our apartment is empty without him. On top of it all I recently found out I'm about two months pregnant. I'm not showing so I've kept it a secret from my family, he is the only one who knows. There is this aching sore hollowness in my chest. He's looking at about 4-6 years. I just managed to scrape enough money to hire a lawyer because i couldn't afford his 40,000$ bond. His preliminary hearing is this Friday and I'm just praying for the best. In a time we're supposed to be celebrating I find myself not wanting to even wake up. I don't even care about taking care of myself anymore.
