Face to face through barbed wire

One move away from gunfire

Atomic heart, ready for explosion

God above, save me from my emotions


I came for answers and nothing more

New mission, change of plans

Never told me you’d be worth dying for

Now we’re undercover, hand-to-hand


I lose myself in a red revolution

Stealing confessions from your scarlet lips

Lay down your weapons and I’ll lay down mine

Make love, not war, I let my iron curtain slip

Whispering little secrets, sharing what’s classified

Nowhere to run, but we put away the cyanide


Your body close in the dark

Hiding from machine gun sparks

You are the only heaven in a world gone mad

and I will lie to my country to lie with my comrade


This poem is inspired by the story of Black Widow, my favorite superhero. It’s written from the perspective of Hawkeye, the American agent who spares the life of the beautiful Russian assassin. In my poem, Hawkeye is a woman.
