The Light Flashes Red

The pain. You yearn.
Refuses. To be provoked.

Your lips move. Profanity.
Flowing. Like silk.
Towards. Life’s injustices.

Take my gun.
You know how it works.

Take a trip.
To a secluded paradise.
Watch the clouds.
In wonder. In silence.
Feel the soft breeze. Caressing.

You decide.
I watch you drift.

The first shot.
Shatters the atmosphere.

The second shot.
Brings a smile upon my face.
