Paul Langlois – Capital Punishment

I imagine that your insides are churning
and you’re awake now, so it’s making it worse,
that you’re falling down slowly into a light sleep
filling with darkness, but you look around first.

And much to your chagrin,
There’s no one looking in.
And no one to beat up,
and no one to hurt.

I imagine you must have been hurt bad
and held on to it, so much that it burst.
There was people who loved you
or maybe there wasn’t any who did,
so you’d lie in the dirt,
waiting for strangers who acted all happy,
and seemed so self-righteous,
who’d giggle and flirt.
Couldn’t you see it, what you were seeking,
the way to your future, the quench to your thirst?

Love was your answer,
but you didn’t notice.
You never managed,
to see through the murk.

Love was your answer,
but you didn’t notice.
You never managed,
to see through it first.

I imagine you may come back as a person with beauty,
a soul with some worth.
But then again maybe you’re too far away from
the things that are needed, to qualify for birth.

That would be my vote.
No second chances here.
At least not for you,
and not on this earth.
