Once Upon a Story

By Gray Vision

Once upon a time
You were so good to me
Honest from the start
Such a perfect scenery.

Once upon a time
You said you loved me
Those words caressed my heart
You meant the world to me. 

Once upon a time
You peered into my eyes
And stared at my soul
With such surmise. 

Once upon a time
You grabbed me by the arm
Dragged me to my room
Revealing a loaded firearm. 

Once upon a time
On the floor on all fours,
I begged and begged and begged
But you had to settle a score. 

Once upon a time
I felt the gun against my head
And heard the rotation of cylinders
As I thought,
This is how it ends. 

Once upon a time
The rotation came to a halt
You peered down the barrel
Right before it sparked. 

Once upon a time
As I laid by your side,
Gagging and coughing
You asked for my forgiveness
As the life faded from your very eyes. 

Once upon a time
I looked back at that day,
And remember those words,
That won’t ever go away.

I forgive you
And I can rest to sure now,
That everything will be okay.

    I felt like I sort of rushed it but that's just because I wanted to relate the suspence etc, while it was all still fresh from the movie. Thank you very much NR =)
