TORN AT THE TRIGGER, NOT

TORN AT THE TRIGGER, NOT

A Poem by M. L. F.

You always said I held the Gun..
The upper hand, you knew was mine
Communications.. Once so fun
Though now I see straight through your Ply
Both coats, Both faces,
Your shellac ...
Veneer is peeling, worn, and drawn
In the light of day, In the light of dawn..
I see your ruse..your corpse so black
But that's Okay... you keep that too...
Your sad veneers I've long since peeled
Your so abused? You're so confused?
Those martyr lies have been revealed..
Such lies, lined up in uniforms
You're Decay in a suit, You're no unicorn...
To think that time spent wasted, THROUGH..
The hours, your anger, I wasted, forlorn..
To buy the lies twas fed by you..
That spoon, slipped in, the perfect form..
But now that I have seen the truth,
You're Right... The upper hand is fit..
And now the only question, Torn...
This gun is cocked...
Can I pull it?...

There is an attitude here that makes this a most enjoyable read. Swagger with a middle finger. Made me smile. Great job

I like the internal rhyme and the aggressiveness of it as well as the slight sarcasm. Nice.

Lol.. Well, yes we do👏👌
Your descriptive venom is both cutting ....and hilarious. "Decay in a suit ".... How to make a man squirm and the onlooker snort with laughter......Masterly ( or should that be Mist(ress)ly in your case)
Loved it. Norman

Wow, great wording. I like the rhyme scheme, somewhat unique.
Can you truly pull that trigger?

When I had to...and sadly.. Yes. Glad you liked the rhyme scheme and the wording..
My memory has gone off.. Did you just change the title or the whole poem? Because it seems to me I've read this before? Oh sorry I still love it 😂😉
