Blanks! ! ! - Poem by Albert Arsenio Sison

June 10,2008
4: 42p.m.

blanks! ! ! blanks! ! ! blanks! ! !

empty shells fired from your gun
pointed straight through my chest
shot out of a snub-nosed revolver
six blasts echoes in my head
so break me now with your fucking games

your intentions are clear
a point blank kill
with madness and violence
you left me too weak to recover
leaving me so severed

an ill intended smile shines slowly
while you stare at me with listless eyes
and then a deafening silence
as the seventh blast shot through my head
now hear a prayer that ended unfinished
