Jump the Gun
Jump the Gun
Knives hates guns. He never touches them unless he absolutely had to.
Because the last time he had, people had died.
'…This is…a tool for killing people.'
'Bullshit…it's a tool for protecting your life.'
'I don't want to kill a person in cold blooded murder…'
'You just did. Don't see them having second thoughts do you? You were just shot in the leg…!'
'Grow up, Knives. Life isn't a do-over. Either you fuck up; right here, right now, or you go and screw someone over. There's no such thing as second chances.'
He knows someone who loves the ghastly weapons; like a child lavishing attention upon a puppy. Someone who knows a gun almost as well as he knows the crippling darkness he is forced to wander in for the rest of his life.
A person who is steel tempered in fire; who has tasted metal and the sweet copper that is blood all at once.
'…Christ be done with this. You're such a child.'
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
