Gunpowder Tears

After both experiencing and witnessing the hurt caused by relationships both romantic and frantic, I thought about how your eyes feel as you recall your memories. As though your tears are made from liquid methyl nitrate and will simply explode as you dig deeper into recollection. 

Gunpowder tears run down a once loved cheek

In danger of explosion should combustible bullshit persist

You give your all, believe everything

Love without question and feel something special

But no, you’re not

Polluted waters mask debris that cuts deep

Flattering tongue fattens you up

Ready to cut your gullible throat

Months turn into years, years into tears.

Those whispers in mind’s  corridors

Feeding paranoid delusions

Then twin barrels suddenly fire

Blasting at neurological disorder

It shoots itself in the foot

Nae, both feet and

Its vindictive head most dead

Gunpowder tears dry on a once loved cheek

Though sporting a black eye

Broken nose

And constipation

Beliefs no longer believed

No pity for the acidic

No crying over spilt bile

Heading on a trip on a runaway train

Destination nowhere

Where no-one really cares
