Gunpowder tears run down a toughly loved cheek

In danger of explosion should combustible bullshit persist

You give your all, believe everything

Love without question and feel something special

 

But no, you’re not

 

Polluted waters mask debris that cuts deep 

Flattering tongue fattens you up

Ready to cut your gullible throat

Months turn into years, years into tears. 

Those whispers in mind’s  corridors

Feeding paranoid delusions

Then twin barrels suddenly fire

Blasting at neurological disorder

It shoots itself in the foot

Nae, both feet and

Its vindictive head most dead

 

Gunpowder tears dry on a toughly loved cheek

Though sporting a black eye

Stomach ulcer

And angina

Beliefs no longer believed 

No pity for the acidic 

No crying over spilt bile 

 

Enjoy that trip on the runaway train

Destination nowhere 

 

Where no-one ever cares
