The Obligation of a Battered Soul

by Cayce   Mar 19, 2008

I'm staring down the barrel of this gun
Knowing his mistakes can't be undone
No regrets will flood through my mind
For in this life, you can't press rewind


Staring out through my glassy eyes
Ignoring the sound of his shrill cries
His frantic pleading falls on deaf ears
I'm about to confirm his worst fears


Static fills my head as I pull the trigger
I watch silently as his eyes grow bigger
Scarlet rivers run down his ghostly face
I saw his skin burst like a fragile vase


This man will never hurt another soul
Killing him had been my main goal
I hope he's with Satan, burning in hell
My glassy eyes were his last farewell

    Your last stanzas alway get to me, this was a unique poem for the one worded stanzas you gave it, it made the poem whole as simple as i can say it is. a little bit cliche in some parts but again hypnotized by words i cant really find many flaws
