Suicide note

Speechless and blank in thought
again and again, the noose glance at me below,
while the unsteady chair is like the last restraint beckoning.
A note; yet to be composed.

A pen in hand and a noose above,
hoping the act would be done with an explanation,
excuses and blames really do not stand here... No, no more,
yet a blank page... Still unwritten.

[Hata Bildir]
