On death row

The State will kill me
Eyes will look at me and speak hate
In the middle of the room
The world will hover over my soul
Like an angry cloud
I will close my eyes ĺest it possesses me
It is a condition, you see, a malady
The hate
All questions have been asked and answered
Who am i to say there was more
No, i dont feel brave
But that is alright
It is the eyes you see
They look at me and i shrivel
Loved people are unafraid of death
Was i loved?
Maybe, once
If i can go to that once i can survive this room
Grasp a ray of light and go to my past
Without saying a word
There is no future and no dreams
They say i dont deserve them
Maybe i dont
The past is just as cruel
Except for that ray,
An oasis of memory
Then the doctor leaves the room
And it is all silent.
