Antihero

I am the finger on the trigger
that pulled and did not beg
for forgiveness after.

I am the silver bullet lost
deep in a villain’s cranium,
echoing on repeat of a past
I am doing everything in my
power to extinguish.

They say you’re supposed
to have an ability but mine
often leaves me bloodless
and numb.

It’s true, they’ll say there is
not a heroic bone in my body,
but saving everyone around me
has become my passage right.

– B.
