Struggle within

I ran as fast as I could.
Screaming that I'm not ready yet
I have not lived..
I need more time.
But there was no escaping

It caught me
Grabbed me with hands like steel clamps
I struggled to no avail it had me in its brace...

It looked me straight into my eyes
It's stare burned like fire going right in to my heart an soul
Without caring it grabbed ahold
Telling me your forever mine

I tell it again I'm not ready
I start to struggle to get free
But it's grip is to tight

Tired an weak I finally give in..
I look back in it's eyes fighting back tears and I finally say It...
"I love you too
