Russian Roulette

They are lost souls
Reaching out for hope
Screaming, crying, slowly dying
But no one ever knows

Round and round they spin
A battle deep within
Feeling like they cannot win
Load the chamber
Watch it spin then lock it in
Glide their finger to the trigger
And pray to God for the answer
It’s the game they play
Because they know no other way

They are lost souls
Reaching out for hope
Screaming, crying, slowly dying
But no one ever knows

Dashing towards them
As quickly as I can
Reaching out my helping hand
The spring releases
Anticipate the sound
Anticipate finding them there, laying on the ground
But instead
Misfire
It’s a second chance
This is where I take my stance
And this is where you take yours

They are lost souls
Reaching out for hope
Screaming, crying, slowly dying
But now you all know

  1. I agree with Alexandra who commented above! Plus, when I clicked on the link to your site I was so excited to see a poem. How refreshing to see poetry in a blog post. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words.
