life I Can't Imagine

I feel the humming,

my heart is drumming.

I'm not running,

im not hiding.

The tears are running

and fears are burning.

Burning across my face.

They leave scars,

but they are what they are.

No one looks

im not a crook

I read my book

to get away.

I'm not hear,

I'm not near.

i see you,

but you don't see me.

I'm not dead

im in a cell; 10 by 10

Yes; I'm in jail.

That's why i feel the humming,

why my heart is drumming,

as i make my way

to the stand

The judge raises his hand

I'm a goner,

i live no longer.

That's my life

as it ends,

One i will never

Live again.
