Six Year Sentence

Meaning seeps from the words
Etched upon the wall

Write letters in my head
As footsteps echo down an endless corridor

Tune into the classics
Sung from the shower block

Grasp at numbers from the well of memory
But it’s too late for that one phone call

Sink the needle deep
Tattoo a forgotten saint on my forearm

Try and find redemption
For the crimes that I’ve committed
