A coward's remorse.

Everyone ducked at the sound of the shot,
"We're coming to get ya, ready or not!"
But there's to many ways to trouble a mind
So empty of reason theres nothing to find

Will my last train of thought involve leaving you here?
Screaming my name as I run, filled with fear?
But in a flash of inspired, drug-fuelled stupor I stop,
"Babe, I'm coming to get ya, ready or not!"

Its a tenuous thing; this cowards resolve
Cos its too late to ask God my sins to absolve,
So maybe there's some space for reason to doubt,
Why I charge back inside intent on getting you out.

The rooms full of smoke and there blood everywhere,
My heart starts to quail, my resolve starts to tear,
When a scream from my girl sets the steel to my back,
I've decided - no more! Its time to attack!

As the bullets zip past me I jump through a door
And roll like a gymnast over the floor,
And I stop as ahead I see my girl - she's weeping,
From a hundred new wounds her blood is now seeping.

She looks at me and a smile lights her face,
But her eyes start to wander - she's finding her place,
Like a void with no windows - like endless black skies,
A shudder escapes her and closes her eyes.

For a moment or two I hope beyond hoping,
But inside I know I'd better start coping,
With the agony rolling around in my head,
That most bitter of thoughts - I'd left her for dead...

I have to admit I liked this poem and thought the flow was easy you conjured up realistic a image without it being overly heavy with graphics and description even the violence was handled rather nicely.Keep up the good work am looking forward to reading more of your work.
