Unaware of my crime
they stood me in the dock.

I was sentenced to life....
without her.

Strange trial.
No judge.
No jury.

I wonder who my visitors will be.

This is a strange one- -I can think straightaway of four scenarios that could fit this. Sometimes it is good to have to ferret out the meaning for ourselves

'I was sentenced to life without her' speaks about the need of somebody for life without whom life becomes more difficult than death.Every word carries a lot meaning -very nice one.

The poem creates a very poignant atmosphere where the protagonist has been struck by a tragedy to be alone for life without his beloved. Limited words having great impact. Thanks.
