The Aliens: Poem

I don’t sleep very well now a day.

I toss and turn, I’m wide awake.

I lay in bed staring at the clock.

Chunks of time I’ve seemed to have lost.

2 am turns to 3:45.

I see them just outta my sight.

In the shadows of the night light.

They are small little humanoids.

I must protect my wife and boys.

What do they want from us right now?

Will they dissect us like a cow?

Can we escape before they do?

Is it to late to fly the coup.

They have us cornered in the room.

My family is in real doom.

I have to protect them some way.

I cannot  let them win today.

I look at my wife she is scared.

My boys are huddled as they stare.

On the floor cause they know its close.

I hug my wife, she grips my clothes.

I push her away with a kiss.

I can’t even imagine what she thinks.

She thought I was crazy before.

Her look,  she doesn’t anymore.

I cannot lose my family.

Not to these things, that’s just not me.

I look through my drawer and find it.

It will save us,  I just can’t miss.

But wait how many are out there.

I count the bullets that are there.

Six, six bullets is all I have.

Now this room feels like a death-trap.

I have to think what can I do?

Maybe this is it, we are through.

My wife, she is holding my kids.

I can’t imagine what they think.

These thing will not take them from me.

Please as if over my dead body.

They will be in the room real soon.

I look at the gun with cold gloom.

I know what has to happen now.

I did it but I don’t know how.

First the youngest then the oldest.

My wife, the last I put to rest.

They wont get them now, it’s over.

I look at my wife, I loved her.

The barrel is warm in my mouth.

I have braced myself for the sound.

I can’t believe this is the end.

Forgive our trespasses, amen.
