he had to do it

six times the fury
of a hollow head
waiting patiently
with a long road ahead

one last chance
for a level head
waiting patiently
and fighting off red

twice the passion
and such a light head
waiting patiently
not yet filled with dread

three kicks
one look
shear terror
crushing sadness
blinding rage
murderous impulse

five times unleashed
fury into head
waiting patiently
staring at the dead

he had to do it
and he has to do it again
one last flash of smoke
and our story is at its end
