Death Seeking An End

She shot herself!

And if that wasn't enough,
she shot me - first!

She died - I didn't.
But if being paralyzed
from the neck down
isn't death - what is?

I only hope
to live long enough
to spit on her grave.
Even better,
I'd like to dig her up
and scatter her bones
in a pen of a thousand pigs,
and feed them nothing
until the bones are gone,
and have come out
the other end.

I seethe inside
because I can do neither.
I can only burn with an anger
that knows no end,
every day,
twelve full hours,
every night
that goes on forever.

She shot herself!
After she shot me.
She died.
I didn't.

Now I am Death
not knowing how
to call it
an end.

Jimmy,
Simply shocking! Outside your typical perimeters. Way to push the envelope!
Nice flex of the pen. ~L
