He Didn't Pull The Trigger

He didn't pull the trigger,
be he is the reason she is dead.
Because of the pain he caused her,
she put a bullet through her head.
Because of the gun's noise no one heard he scream.
She had already made her choice,
but no one knew of her tormented dreams.
The dreams she dreamed of him,
and the love that they once shared.
She took her life because he refused to care.
She loved him with all she could,
and he left her all alone.
Her heart was still with him,
the night that trigger was pulled.
And before she took her life,
she whispered " I will always love you",
as the rain fell dark and cold.
But her last words went unheard,
As the gun roared and the thunder rolled.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

i cant relate like everyone else, its a good poem though. i would like to point out though(without tryingto be rude or anything) its lacking in continuity, at first there are rhymes, then it stops, then at the end it rhymes again, if you added a few relevant words and used a rhyming dictionary website(i use rhymezone) you could do it! again, not to be rude.

It explains a very desperate attempt to get back the love that you've lost. Very good, written from someone who knows what it is like to feel pain and sadness. I hope you keep writing.
