poetry by j matthew waters

that gun in your hand

click click bang
reload your clip and
take aim of my heart

I don’t give a damn and
I don’t want to know
how you found the courage
to become someone you’re not

click click bang
bring me to my knees
and make me close my eyes
but just promise me one thing
promise me the world
won’t end tonight

  1. Interesting take on a troubled relationship .

  2. I like the metaphor in this … some bad relationships can kill the spirit if one doesn’t have the courage to get out.
