I am alive, not dead

Drifting off into vapor,
Plasmatic memoirs of the past.
A time traveler, though still sitting here
I am alive, not dead.

I lift my hands up to my face,
Check if I’m still breathing.
I feel warm breathe drift out of me,
I am alive, not dead.

Check the clock,
It ticks away,
The time I have left in the world,
I am alive, not dead.

I’m running back in time to pain,
The misery I had without you,
Hate, crime, and suicide,
I hate running back in time.

Here to a day I died inside,
Feel it all again,
Anxious for reality,
But stuck in a blockade of the past.

Kill me now,
Don’t wish to be,
Stuck in this dreadful past.
I think I am not alive…

Gasping for air,
Searching for reality,
Escaping myself,
Run back to the present.

I lift my hands up to my face,
Check if I’m still breathing.
I feel warm breathe drift out of me,
I am alive, not dead.

Yes, I am alive, not dead.
