One gun, one bullet

by Meagan Adelle   Jul 17, 2008

One gun one bullet-That's all I need.
Let's run away tonight, and end this misery.
Everyone has eyes, but no one can see,
All the troubles and pain we hide inside so deep.
We can no longer see past someone's fake smile.
Maybe we would, if we looked in their eyes awhile.

One gun, one bullet- Followed by something so bright
I just need something to start feeling in this heart tonight.
It seems that for every cycle that ends,
A new one is found, a cycle starts again.
While looking at the world, I see it's full of lies,
People everywhere wanting to give up, I join them as they cry.

One gun, one bullet- With a moment of ecstasy,
A tear escapes the eyes as you watch a flowing crimson sea.
People have lost sight, no one sees what they've become.
As they look back they fear all they have done.
It's sad that I view memories as an enemy,
Overflowing emotion that can cause the end of me.

One gun, one bullet- All I have is one shot
How can I forget this is all I've got?
It's said that feelings won't last.
How is that so when I still run from feelings of the past?
Sometimes I wish to fix things, just be granted a do-over,
But what's done is done, there's no time to start over.

One gun, one bullet- Take it and aim high.
Need to find a release, find an escape, feel like I can fly.
As loneliness kicks in, I realize all I have done.
Looking back at the past, I'm terrified, I want to run.
I can't run from myself, I need shelter, I need safety.
Hear my screams, somebody please save me

    This is amazing. im putting you on my fave list. the emotion and truth that seep from your words is almost unbearable. i love this poem, how it is both personal, and questioning the world and its blind eyes. really beautiful, it made me stop and think about everyone i know who has been given the cold shoulder, and the many more that i have no met, yet. wonderful write. i sincerely hope this is something that you dont feel, and if you do, im deeply sorry for that. life does go on, and evenutally the memories and pain will pass and be faded time remnants. sorry getting preachy
    hope everything is alright!
    take care!
    keep on writing! <3
