The Sniper

The Sniper
A Marksman’s Poetic Paradigm

I am the Sniper and you are my mark.
I am hidden in a tower window while you are exposed in the park.

 

Holding my rifle, looking inside the scope…
To have you in my sights, that is all that I hope.

 

Days, weeks, and months, I’ll stay and wait…
Till you appear whether it be early or late.

 

With my finger on the trigger…
… and the .50 caliber bolted onto the chamber…
I’ll be ready to fire whether it be…
… this second, the next minute, the next hour…
… even if it’s later today, or soon after.

 

Till it’s the exact moment, I won’t move nor pull the trigger…
I’ll stay concealed here until you’re heart’s in my cross-hair.
Waiting in the shadows is my game from the beginning till ever after…
I tell you, I am an excellent Marksman with a Rifle…
… and I am an excellent Sniper.

 

Barret M82 - .50 Caliber bolt action, recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle.

Long Time, No See, You and Me

Long Time, No See, You and Me

Five months I have not seen nor have I talked to you…
Yet I still think of you…
Still, I’m in love with you…
Same as when the first time I saw you …

Normally, when I don’t see or talk to anyone for a month or two…
I forget who they were and what they did with me too…

But you, I haven’t forgotten not even in the slightest manner…
Though we did not have much to do together…
But talk a little about training lessons and walk on the same umbrella to the gala together…

You struck me like lightning…
Your name in my ear forever ringing…

Before I knew it, I adored you that much…
And I fell in love with you so much…

You ask what you did to me…
You have but to smile at me that day on the interview…

And I had but to see you fill up that form and observe you…
After then, you had my heart stuck in the middle of the sky so blue…
