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.'

I hope you'd know
that I have always
The things I've said,
And the things I've done,
Were only to
From the truth.
Because I knew
That if you heard,

Here I am walking around aimlessly
Scars surround every part of my body
Lies are all that I seem to know
Tears no longer come out
Just the supreme silence
I walk for what seems to be forever
I lose the strength that I have to stand
I was done, I was done with trying
I wanted to sit and rot
But there you were
The flickering light in my hurt eyes
You came for me...came running
At this close to dead corpse
You whispered thoughts of hope- often true thoughts
It was never merely flattery, and overreacted words
Nor was it fake for secret intentions
It was honest, kind, true
You are the only one that makes me feel this way
Because you are the first one you found ME
I want desperately to say I love you my friend
You help in me in so many ways.
