Head throbbing
Lungs bursting
Rain beating against my face

Arms numb
Legs cramped
Pain excruciating in its embrace

Hands swollen

And screaming,
I wonder why I’m here

Cannot remember
Cannot think
Nothing is clear

Looking out

I see people
Women and men.

Looking down

I see faces
Do I know them?

Mouth dry
I cry out
And a drink is sent

A sponge
Well soaked
And my thirst is vent

Thunder and lightning
The sky is rent

A spear in my side
And my life is spent.
