My own end

by Burning Angel

Hush, For if I must tell you this, then you must hear.
Be very quiet, then you can hear the fall of my tears.
Listen intently as he screams my name harshly.
Listen as I breath between the pausing.

Can you hear that, That gun shaking in his hands?
No, don't close your eyes, I didn't.
Watch what he does, then see how I ended.
Is this not just so SPLENDID?!

Watch, little ones, so I can teach you.
Don't ever let A man do the things he is about to do.

***

They watch unbelievingly at the tv screen.
Asking silently, why he had to be so mean.
They don't understand what I done so wrong.
His love, was what I seemed to long.

They ask for a turn around, so I may live.
But, this is a true story, of my harsh end.

***

He pulls the trigger when He finds my hiding place.
But, he misses, for he forgot to aim.
I try my hardest to escape.
But, I was not quick enough that day.

He shot again In the back of my head.
Then, when He seen that I was not dead,
Out, came a knife with an edge too sharp,
He done it too slow, making it even more harsh.

He laughed as blood filled my lungs.
Trying to spit it out, but instead, It makes me gurgle.
I fade into a loving darkness.
Wounded, and Wondering why I even deserved this.

Typos: in the first line the word "Fore" is used incorrectly - that word means before. So I would probably switch it to "for" or something like that - it would make a lot more sense that way. Also, "SPLENDED" should be "SPLENDID." I just noticed these mistakes, and thought it was worth mentioning :) It is your poem and I am just trying to help...

This is a very dark poem here. I really like it :) It seemed to me that you were trying to tell the kids who were watching that they should always stand up for themselves no matter what even if it kills you :) I don't know if that was what you were trying to say, but that is what I got out of it.

Excellent
5/5
