       Yeah I've been in a foul state of mind, but the demons wont win. I've known depression and it can be beaten, it will be defeated. Im stronger then the demons.

    You gave me this gun
    Does anyone need six bullets?
    Never was a gambling man


    So I guess itís onto another day
    Iíll keep this empty gun
    Held close to dried veins


    Never was
    A gambling...
    or perfect...
    always been
    just a man


    This body's been broken
    Virginity and innocence
    A fleeting memory


    Living in the twilight
    Thanks to demented
    Religious beliefs


    Never was
    the model son
    or Don Juan
    always been
    partially damaged


    Iíll see another sun rise
    a new loverís bed
    strength returning to my arms
    So Mr. D. Pression
    Keep your damn bullets

    He's dead, isn't he?
    Very witty. Good thoughts with good character, just rolling on through the chambers, no hesitation.
    The last click wasn't capitalized 'CLICK'
    In the third stanza would it be

    Never was
    A gambling [man]?

    I think 'bodies' should be 'body's' in the fourth stanza.
    That's all I found. A bang up job here (ha ha ) and a frightening seen.
    Nice piece.

      ohh, I liked this poem a lot. Your style was brilliat and the meaning behind the poem or concept if you will, is almost genius. Although Im not quite sure if you wanted to implement a ryhming scheme, I say this because at times, it doesn't rhyme at all, whereas other times it does. It kind of throws the reader of a bit, but once you read it again, its all made up for and more. Great imagery and articulation of thought, a fav of mine. Thanks for sharing, keep writing, and take care. I look foward to more of your write. keep it comming

      Well, this was interesting. I have to say this was powerful. Ok, he shot Mr. D. Pression? I'm tired and dull now, sorry. I thought the sound effects (onomatopoeia) worked well. I'd like to kill my depression, but he wants to be Little Johnny Live-a-lot. I've defeated him before, but he comes back. I still enjoy my life though. He'sa not winning.

      grrr... this poem made me sooo angry as i was reading it...not in a way that is bad though...like i completely understood the feeling. the lines

    Living in the twilight
    Thanks to demented
    Religious beliefs

    those ones shouted in my brain as i read them...with passion, and anger and madness...trying to escape depression...is...something i have yet to conquer. but i still adore it...

    Iíll see another sun rise
    a new loverís bed...

    i really like those lines too, the way they tie to the end about getting strength, hope back and then...its over. right when you think you've got it licked...there it is again. this poem is amazing, John. keep up the work, you have the anciet light in you...i can tell even in NY you are really living in the lit-up perpetual summers and falls or Lothlorien...peace be with you!
