Hangman's Noose

Hangman's Noose


Hanging by a rope, suspended mid-air,
naked, cold and helpless.
Who can save you now?
Face-down, about to hit the ground,
juxtaposed between heaven and hell,
life and death.

Someone has saved you – the rope? …
Tied tightly around your naked ankle.
Gripping you, not letting you fall.
But still, you are helpless.
Destined to hang there for eternity.
The spotlight forever shining on you,
a strong, persistent beam.
Penetrating through to your very soul.
A never-ending interrogation.

You have no face, your expression blank.
There are no emotions to show.
