Bullets are strange things.

A little lumped of shaped hard metal

Lying quietly, harmless

In the palm of my hand.

Little devil.

Once in motion, who can stop it?

IÕm no superman.

Once, twice, three timesÑ

The sound like the end of the World

Lung, shoulder, arm

Unaturally occuring structures

Now reside within my flesh.

The pain is odd, distant.

Little devils,

they got me.

I feel something explode in my hands

A demon of my own

Triumphantly shrieks away

My attacker falls, and I am mildly startled

Remarkable.

I am quietly astonished as he dies at my feet.

Little demon, what have you done?

"The Devil controls the demons, " the whisper in my ear.

"So whoÕs really done the doing?"

This pain is not so distant.

Suddenly, all is gone.

Everything.

My eyes open to the world,

I sit up and stretch my knotted limbs

Rubbing grains of sleep

From my bleary eyes.

Time for school again.

OK, for all of you people who just finished that pome and are thinking, "What was

THAT?!" I just want to let you know that I am NOT going to shoot people, nor have I in

the past! This poem is actually about a dream I had about three weeks agoÑI seem to

have a lot fo dreams about dying. Not pleasant, really! O_o;. I think itÕs stress induced

(Yah, yÕknow how youÕre sÕposed to wake up BEFORE you hit bottom? HAH!).

Anyway, yah. I PROMISE I am niether suicidal OR homocidal! :-D Hey, if any of you

readers are into dream interperetation, drop me a line! IÕd love to know what you make

of some of the WEIRD things my brain comes up with!

Jya, minna-san!
