A Missed Target

Constant reminders of how you effect me

Will forever stain my wrists,

No apologies,

No emotions,

Just scars.

How I once cared so much,

I will never know.

You had your shot,

But your bullet missed

And I'm still here.

You blew it.


A Missed Target

The bullet - your affection.

The target - my heart.

With eyes closed shut,

Arms open wide,

I awaited the impact.

I waited to feel.

I waited for you.

An easy target.

The pull of the trigger.

The bang of a gun.

You didn't even come close,

And I'm done waiting.
