Death I see

Coming to me


Blood is flowing

I am glowing


Pain is here

So, I fear


Grab for the rope

It’s my last hope


Burning in hell

Trapped in my cell


Happiness for me

Will never be


Running scared

No one cared.

Collage was made using images found on Google: fire background, silhouette of a woman running, but her right hand is from another silhouette, the hand grasping for the rope, the rope, and the prison bars – six images in all.
