Metal And Flesh

You don’t have to say anything
Choices made set in stone
sometimes silence is golden
sometimes silence speaks volumes
Sit tight in your plastic palace
higher than a kite flies
up and above all the trash talk
Bobble headed shift and shuffle shakers
who could care more or less
Another gun goes off
mind to hand
finger on the trigger
automatic reaction
pull it back
set the world on fire
Bullet set free
sonic boom discharge
penetrating time and space
piercing flesh and bone
Blood pumps adrenalin high 
heart beat 
heart beat 
heart heart beat heart beat heart 
…beat skip and jump
heart stop 
…heart 
…heart 
Metal and flesh
melt into eternity
a long dark shallow grave
Linger in the midst of dust and ash
Linger in the scent of death
Another gun goes off
mind to hand
automatic reaction
finger on the trigger
Bullet set free sonic boom discharge
penetrating time and space
piercing flesh and bone
Blood pumps adrenalin high 
heart beat 
heart beat 
heart heart 
beat heart 
beat heart…heart beat…heart be…heart b…heart…__________________© 2016 TrilbyYates
