A simple word is all it takes

To unleash the passion the world creates

With a single vicious phrase

A quarrel is struck to last many days

--&--

Feeding off of anger

Growing through attacks, ours in turn

Emotion rules the mind

Logic no more, as time will learn

--&--

Soon a monster is born

One that contributes to the fight

Soon all hearts will be torn

From their places amongst bitter night

--&--

I've saturated my heart

And poisoned your mind

Bitterness and revenge

Are running through my vein

--&--

This monster aches to sever ties

And thrives to sever bonds

Our friendship ends in lies

And, over our hearts, a stone shell is donned

--&--

I have run my anger dry

I wished that you would die

Soon my aching will be eased

With this throbbing disease

--&--

The silver shine of metal

Draws my hands to the trigger

The whistle of the kettle

Could have warned you of my shiver

--&--

Silently creeping,

Gently sneaking

I have found the perfect place to hide

Now I know you will die

--&--

Oblivious, you walk through the door

As you turn, I stalk you ever more

You lock the door and hear a shuffling on the floor

Turning, you see the anger that I bore

--&--

Your eyes land on the shine of metal

A squeal escapes your lips

You broke my heart when you tried to meddle

In secrets that never should have left my lips

--&--

Tears run down my angered eyes

The salty beads of fear saturate your cries

I've come to deliver my wish

Your screaming body, I am going to miss

--&--

The barrel clicks

Your time is done

To my mission I will stick

Maybe, you should run

--&--

You beg for your life

I do not care for your plea

My hand is ready to end my strife

I long to set myself free

--&--

With a loud snap, you go limp

Your life is gone

Suddenly I see your cold staring eyes

And I see the deed I've done

--&--

The gun drops from my hand

I'm shaking, no longer can I stand

I stole the life I truly loved

And I am condemned with this life I've drugged

--&--

The monster laughs now

All the days it's waited

I wipe blood from your brow

My anger is sated

--&--

Tears pierce through my cries

There is savagery in the monster's eyes

Now, too, I wish to die

I lift the metal as I cry

--&--

Now my life is gone, you see

I wanted for this to be

In life we were always far away

Now, in death, by your side I will stay

--&--
