gunshot unheard

Secure your soul
      because mine was nearly stolen
   hold the brakes|
          and mind the gas pedal because
                        you never know
     when you need to punch either one
    & selfishness comes like liquor
   many different forms and colors
           bottles and shapes
          plastic or glass
       cheap or gaudy plain champagne

    What do I have to celebrate tonight?
        The fact that I’ll never live a life
                         like you
             Where cruelty comes so easy
       my endeavors were merely
                 satisfactory /merely amusing

                 My fear does not weaken me
                            It pisses me off that
                       you don’t know that|
             I am not this person &
                 I won’t play this game again
                Everything is too far
                            Gone
