HELP ME NAME THIS UNTITLED POETRY/LYRIC

 

 

 

Smell of sulphur in the air
Little sure shot, you’ve done it again
Smoke rises from bullet words
Mouthful of whiskey to numb the pain

If you were shooting for humility
Why did you reload for humiliation?
Wounded, and yet still alive
My soul survived this aberration

(Did yours?)

A year ago we were recognizable
Your eyes were still your own
And in them I still saw mine
But you couldn’t let well enough alone

(Could you?)

Sunburned thoughts fill my head
Little sure shot, you took your aim
And from the safety of your corner
Watched me take the blame

(Didn’t you?)

Wish I was anesthetized
Hypnotized
Didn’t realize
The mess you left for me

Wish I could understand
This crash-land
And demand
Your sincere apology

And now in the aftermath
Accusations like a blood trail
Who said this?  Who did that?
Until I’m left embittered and frail

(Aren’t you?)

But here in the afterlife
Life after the battles are ended
My heart knits itself back together
And my soul becomes transcendent

(Does yours?)
