we are both breathing heavily

that's what I remember

is the breaths

oh, and the gun

there is a gun

I can't tell if I have it

or if you do

my mind is cluttered

I said I'd die for them

well, he lays on the floor

the man I'd die for

he's dying

he's bleeding

I'm fighting

he's shot

I'm attacking you

I think I have your gun

I want to pull the trigger

you hurt him

he is bleeding

the teacher once asked what we'd do in this situation

during drills

I said I'd stand in front, protect people

I meant him

he's the one who I'd always give my life up for

he's bleeding

you shot him

my mind is cluttered

there is no gun

the gun is gone

you leave

I fall

I hurt

I'm shot

you shot me

where?

I can't feel it

but I'm bleeding

I fall down right next to him,

the man I'd die for,

he's bleeding

he's cold

his eyes won't open

I scream

I yell

it hurts to move

but I put his head in my lap

he has a bloody hole in his forehead

he's cold

he's bleeding

the man I'd die for is dead

I'm shot

I'm bleeding

there is no gun

you're gone

murderer

you killed us

he's dead

and I'm bleeding

so much blood

I'm cold

why?

I'll never know

you never said

you just looked so angry

you breathed so heavily

well, I died that day too

and

you

shot

your

way
