Cold killer - Mr Ex

I’ll take you down with the pull of a trigger
Cold metal chills my bones,
At the same time sweat drips from my brow.
My steady hand lets me know I’m in control.
I am in control.
It’s the begging I cannot stand, the word ‘Sorry!’
Sorry for what, I think to myself?
I don’t bother to ask, I don’t care.
The final moment at the squeeze of my finger…
I wait for a moment or two, just to see…dead.
I walk through the empty back street.  Job done.
Great pay, but job satisfaction? Not really.
And on to the next.

    I'd say your form is Dramatic Verse/ I am having a contest to HIGHLIGHT poets outside the USA would you please pick one of your best and enter? The contest is called Foreign Exchange. Please put the country your writing from on the bottom of the verse. I looking forward to reading it! Light & Love
