Backfired

Composed 4/5/14
Description: (Day 5 of NaPoWriMo) Inspired by the events of 2/27/14 (and that whole dang week, really).

The devil has cursed me today
He’s taken my tongue and twisted
It into a cannon
That fires on demand

And he’s stripped my comrades
To their barebones
So defenseless
They turn defensive
And shoot me down with
Heat seeking bullets
Armor piercing
Heart piercing

And I fall
Bleeding out on the ground
Dying slowly
No mercy
And I wonder

Why did I say that?
