Hi there,

My name is Norman. I’m a writer and a poet.
I also paint. I have a web page where some of my writing, poems and artwork is posted.
The dark walls of death row are heavy on my heart. And I could surely use a friend to brighten my day. I’m a good-hearted man that only wants the best for those who are around me. Here is a small piece of some of my writing I did after I came to death row.

“Plague of Death”

by Blake

“There is a window outside my cell. It faces the West. In the evening hours of each day the last sun rays beam inside my cell shining upon the bars casting an equaled measured line of shadows upon the back wall of my cell. It is said ‘Do not watch a clock, because you will never see it move.’

Here, on THE ROW, times stands still for no-one. You can literally see the shadows of bars slide forebodingly, across the wall.
There is a maniacal passion about each day. It is a brash, boastful, facade you see on the face of every MAN here. With the passage of time their demeanor becomes even more animated. The laughter is just an octave too loud, imperceptibly forced. As if to live each day to the fullest, because the march of shadows never cease. Time is the enemy here. Every man faces it. The marching of incessant time means only one thing: appeals are running out.

With each seasonal change comes one more denial from the courts. Laughter becomes a little more strained. Attention spans get a little more shorter. It is as if a playing disease has come. Men begin to distance themselves for fear of contamination. The Plague of Death be upon you. Everyone can see it.”

I have a hope in my heart that someone out there will be able to see the man I am today, and give me a chance to be a friend.
I hope to hear from you. You can reach me on Securus. I have a tablet.

Have a good day.

Always, Blake.
