lead pressed into metal
how simple a plan
how destructive it is
just slip it into the magazine,
just press it all the way in,
gently guide it into the handle.
it went so smooth, did you hear it click
almost there, almost done
pull the slide back, all the way
fingers are sweaty, don't let it slip!
released with grace,
the echo breaks the dark silence.
do you feel the power
do you hear the wrath
now its set, just a few more steps
pressed against the brow,
right here, do you see
the barrel stings with coldness
but still i sweat
carefully squeeze the trigger
take a breath, almost there, almost done
just a little further, just a little more
 
click.................................
 
quivering with fear
stop, look............
i can not see, the tears, the tears are in the way
the safety is still on....
the safety....of all things to forget
shaking and trembling
just press it off
dont turn back
not now, its gone to far
DO IT DO IT NOW
tears streaming down my face
my throat swollen with fear
place it to my brow
now i squeez again
just a little further
just a little.............
