Bullet For My Birthday


bullet for my birthday
as i watch everything fade to grey

bullet for my birthday
and everything will be okay

bullet for my birthday
no longer will i be a stray

bullet for my birthday
watch my body die and decay

bullet for my birthday
so i dont love you everyday

bullet for my birthday
so my heart isnt on display

bullet for my birthday
so this nightmare goes away

bullet for my birthday
so you kiss doesnt persuade

bullet for my birthday
so you go away

bullet for my birthday
so i dont love you another day

bullet for my birthday
today

    Flows very nicely to piece together a monologue of hardened desperation. Looking forward to your other poems! Thanks for portraying such a real depth which most hesitate to share. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
