    You come closer
    And I shoot back
    unwillingly
    Leaving you
    Far ahead of me.

    thought provoking, indeed.

    does "shoot" imply violence, or movement? a verbal exchange, or a to-and-fro interaction between intimate friends? so much that can be said about this piece. THANK YOU.

    Thanks so much, baller and gogounited!

    Baller:
    for me 'shoot back' implies both movement and not exactly violence but(misplaced) defensiveness. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me :).
