Bang, Bang

You’re an ember travelling on the dinghy of life, you’re a soul that struggles to breathe, your troubled darkened soul smiles at me through listerine coated teeth, the release from life is in your finger, as you’re squeezing down the trigger, you snigger, you wilter, you fall like a feather, I tell you’re better, much better than this, and I see your palm turn face up, your palm of light is a burning fight, an awakening scorch from the sun.

I yawn, and we are on the beach again with euphoria filled young minds, its sands dispense, its oceans surrender, our scars are fresh and tender. We’re curving our fingers into heart shapes, we’re holding them up to the horizon, we’ve joined the hearts together, and I held the burning question, will you marry me? then bang, bang, the gates had beckoned, bang, bang, you had been sectioned, from a trigger, a snigger, my little orange fizzler, my little feather in the glistening wind.
