The Gun

By Rashaad Pierre

I remember the day like it was yesterday
The first day I held you
You were cold at first

But then you warmed up to me
You were small yet so heavy
When I showed you off people ran

But I kept you so close … so dangerously close
When we held hands …
When I once squeezed you

I felt so powerful
People listened and obeyed when we were together
I never realized how strong you were.

But I had to leave you, you were cancerous as when you were used
So cold yet so warm
So much life yet so much death

Please never turn on me .​
