Gun Fighter

by Christopher Shin

My mind explodes as
the gray become
the paint in this world.

With a black
pistol it flies
as the heat and
smoke filters
through the dark

The tragedy is
that I wish the world
would understand my
battle cry.

Yet all I have
are the lost loves,
and the bitter
sting of a fluttering

When the loves
stare and smile with
jagged teeth,
and words of friendship
can only spew from
their dagger smirks.

It isn't fair that
all the stars can
burn so bright
that it burns
your soul.

When they don't care
and they shine so bright.
When all I can do is
cry with broken tears.

All I want is the faith
to dream and love.
Yet the lead digs
deep and I'm gone.

Wow. This is very sad, and very well done. I like it a lot.
