Fire Away

written by: Kelli J Gavin

@KelliJGavin

 

Those words
Every
Last
One
Hurt and scarred
Left me damaged
Bruised
Broken
Unable to function
I found my armor
Where it had been stored
For a time such as this
Knowing it would be needed
Knowing it was needed with you
Those words
Every
Last
One
You fire away
Each time
Words
Assailing
Hitting
Striking
My armor protects
It guards
It deflects
Enables me to move on
To walk away
To increase my speed
Away
From you
From words
That assail
And hit
Striking hot
I won't return
Never again
Not this time
No
Fire away
Your words are not needed
Never were
Best wishes
You no longer have a target
Fire away
