A Second Chance

A chance to take that fatal bullet

From her lolling head

Round removed

Route reversed

Returned to revolver

A chance again to see her animate

Not a seeping leaking mess

Flopped on the floor

A chance to try again

Maybe with knife or rope

Or just fists and feet

A second chance…

very dark-a second chance to do the same thing a different way. Man, I used to think that way in high school: How many ways could I kill 'Billy' for calling me gay before we left class. I'm glad I am always happy now and those thoughts have passed.

So, Clockworkchris, how did 'Billy' get it in the end?

And always happy now? full frontal cure? ...

:)

Thanks for the visit.
