Shot

Shot

A Poem by Sara Elyse Abrams

You pull your gun out,

But I just stood there in fear,

You pull the trigger,

And the bullet hit my bare skin,

I fall to the ground,

And I clutch my chest in pain,

As I bleed out on the floor,

You shoot again,

I wince at the feeling,

Of another bullet hitting me chest,

But I do not dare say anything,

For if I do,

I am apparently to sensitive,

Can not take a joke,

A cry baby,

So I silently bleed out on the cold,

Hard ground,

And as I realize that this is the end,

I realize the reason you won't pay attention to my lifeless body,

Because you never realized that you pulled the trigger,

You never realized that you killed me,

Over,

And over again.

Ah, the cruelties of life. I believe I understand the message, and the constant internal strife relating to those around us. If this is not it please correct me but I certainly find the wording engaging. I look forward to more works. Keep writing my friend!
