Bullet-Proof Soul

1024-silver-bullets-wallpaperI shot you
Right between the eyes
An apathetic fury
Contained in flint
Released in friction
Self-righteous in nature
And you didn’t blink
With your bullet-proof soul
Hardened over time
Thick like concrete
Scabrous and full
Safe from pressure
But lost to feeling
Weighted complacency
And selfish gain
Hollow-point nearness
Exploding flat
Expanding even
Smoothed out clean
I always blinked first
In this game of ours
And my soul aches
For a moment with yours
A vulnerable hesitation
Before you fade to black
Clutching your pride
Like so many pennies.
