Shotgun

by Hope   Aug 15, 2017


Black holes inside my skull,
insanity digs deeper,
love gets cheaper,
where do we go from here when we lost it all?;
because we crash and burn with the rain,
what's changed?
mortal sin burns in these veins,
you're gone with the rain,
the sun doesn't burn,
the soul yearns,
you spin until you crash to the ground,
pull me out,
love digs my grave,
mortal sin is paved,
you're mine for catastrophic faith,
let me in through clouds of hope,
I'll fade with the smoke,
love doesn't die;
mine,
the end never stops turning,
love keeps on burning,
the dead keeps walking,
the dead keeps talking,
catastrophic faith doesn't end,
my hope doesn't bend,
bones break,
I make one mistake,
you're gone;
gone at the sound of a gun.

    This sounds like it could be a song. Very rhythmic/melodic, whichever is the right term. It captures the fragility of life. The part about the dead "keeps walking/talking" struck me the most. Might be due to the sh I'm going through right now, that aside I enjoyed reading this.
