The Good Guy

My eyes glisten as soon as I appear. 
I feel the eye’s of my enemies as if they are almost near. 
There eye’s stare with hate and fire. They want me to stare back but I lack the desire. 
I stand helplessly as they start to move in. My heart is racing but I can’t give in. 

I hold my ground and don’t blink an eye. All the while saying the good guy can’t die. 
There here now only a few steps away. Best thing to do now is to look away. 

I’m tapped on the shoulder. Hey, I know you! You’re the guy who lives on 6th street, How do 
you do? 

I finally look up, oh what a mistake. This guy is gonna kill me! Oh, this can’t be my 
fate. 

I scream and scream more, oh god please wake me up! If this isn’t a dream then I really am 
stuck. 

I take a step back and swallow my pride.
I guess it’s time for the good guy to die.
