Bullets From My Gun – Poem #3321/08/2019
Take aim with my gun
Steady my hands as bullets run
A click of a trigger can’t be undone
Hatred unleashed out of love
Wish you didn’t fall for her eyes
Or bury yourself deep within lies
Soon you’ll realise, war doesn’t hide
As the innocent willingly give their life
Was the pleasure, worth the pain?
Savour the bitter taste of her fame
Who did she say was to blame?
Did she mention them by their name?
The subject of your loveless laughs
As you lost each other in romantic bars
Did you see the light in the stolen dark?
Are you to blame for my tortured heart?
Am I guilty of a crime I didn’t commit
When all I did was love her with all my sins
Was I the angel she couldn’t forgive,
Or was it this devil she missed?
Was it a mistake to fall in love?
Was it your lust or my dreaded disgust?
Will this murder become a part of us?
Or are you faster than bullets from my gun?
