I Called The Shots and Took a Bullet Too

May 5, 2010

raining paper planes,
bounds and lines fuzzed, blurred.

reality unwound.
war zone surreality.

gunshots are letters forced together,
drifted apart then breaking into words.
my words.

paper gets torn, frayed, sopped, letters unspoken are illegible.
iron explosion of emotion, veins, kaleidoscope heart.

i fired the shot.
spoke the bullets that pulverized your love note.
now I'm crying kaleidoscope tears.

This is an off-the-cuff depiction of what breaking up when you don't want to feels like.
