Dead

Written by: Gabby Muir

I’m alive
But do I deserve to be?
Innocents walking
In the land of the dead
And me
Cold, unsettled
Above the surface
Alive in body
Dead in mind
Drowning in sins
Dragged sown
Down
Below the surface
With the dead
Spirit drifting
Body lifeless
Soul black
Love decays
Dead
They say
She’s dead
Off to the morgue
Cries for help
Swallowed by misery.
