I Am Dead And That Is Too Quite Long Before

‘’I am dead ‘’ he answers
When I ask him

Where he has been
Since I met him last

He now sits
Along with the dead

If I wish to talk with him
I have to talk

With his dead body
If I want to meet him

I have to go
To the grave yard

He firmly believes
He is dead

Let him send
To a morgue

he can not bear any more
the foul smells

his own dead body emits
So he has stopped

taking care of his own self
but what a surprise

how his dead body replies
and he says

‘’’ my consciousness tells me
To talk with you

The same again tells me
I am dead ‘’

A sense is working
against a sense

as a dead man after his death
buys fruit

from the same vendor
from the same street

and all is done
without his knowledge

after all who is sure
that your consciousness goes

along with your death
can not the other way
be the same
when you are alive?

you may continue
to do all the chores of daily life

but in reality
you are d*mn dead

here I am 'he '
and you are 'I '

and I understood long before
That I am

A dead man’s walking soul .

this is all about a disease where a person thinks he/she is dead and rest is a mixture of Hollywood fantasy film ...
