My heart beats faster
As I await the inevitable.
I feel goosebumps all over.
The weather seems furious;
Blowing wind left to right.
I feel my heart coming out of its cage;
It’s so painful I think I might die.
My eyes are wandering in their sockets;
Everyone seems oblivious of my plight.
Oh! I see someone coming;
I sense familiarity in his posture.
Suddenly the room becomes dim;
There’s no soul other than me and him.
I try to see through the dimness;
Oh! I see him now.
He is with the ugly rod –
I hear myself shouting at the top of my voice,
I’m sorry! please forgive me.
I have no control over my body;
But all my cries fall on deaf ears
As the whip lands on my skin
I know I am done for.
