Forever - Poem by Alexandra Estes

I watched you today;
Though my heart the face did not betray,
As you walked an took her hand.
Only so much can the heart stand;
And all this was enough.

A love so wrong I must amend;
So with this plan I now begin.
Mine will you be;
My way will you soon see.
You will be mine and no one else’s.

But soon am I able to tell,
This plan of mine will surely fail;
For you will never see the light,
Though every scream from my heart says fight,
To make you mine and no one else’s.

A new plan does arise;
My pain in clever disguise.
Pain filled craze in my heart;
I take the gun to do its’ part;
To make you forever mine.

Fear is on your face;
This memory does never erase;
But this plan I will not fail,
Come fire or Hell,
You will be mine and no one else’s.

Trigger pulls as bullet fires,
A tribute to my desires;
The blood does spread;
My love joins the land of the dead,
To forever be mine.

One last bullet, one last shot;
The ended war has been fought;
Cold metal to my head;
I too will join the land of the dead,
To make you forever mine.

One last look of sad farewell;
Trigger pulled; destination Hell;
My love will I soon see,
For life has ended for him and me,
And now he is forever mine and no one else’s.
