The Green Mile

from Mika - Tuesday, December 17, 2002
accessed 1225 times

It's kinda old, but I wrote this poem after I read "The Green Mile" (Stephen King). If you haven't read the series, you probably won't understand this.

I saw the pain and started crying
I felt your tears when you were dying
I said I'd never come undone
From start of day 'til set of sun

Your hands are big, I am not lying
Only one thing guilty of, that was trying
To put together a broken thing
To help two silenced girls to sing

I see the hurt and want to help you
Thoughts you have many, words few
You're strapped into the electric chair
Moments ago, you were knelt in prayer

I've felt the healing your hands can do
Now I bind up those hands, right on cue
A single tear drops from your eyes
I know you're safe in Paradise

I liked that. I just read "the green mile" recently and this expresses the sadness that the story brought out, to me at least. I enjoy Stephen King, not everything is horror. THe green mile made me cry when I read it, it was so sad how he had to die innocently. *sigh*
