Dead & Lifeless

by Shirika_Pollard

 A black rose for every soul

A black rose for every soul

 A black rose for every soul
I can't drown my demons..... They know how to swim
Our existence is a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness

I am dead & Lifeless
I wonder where we go when we die
I hear voices when I cry
I see shadows in my sleep but these are my secrets to keep,
I want to drown in my sorrows
I am dead & lifeless.

I pretend to live
I feel cold fingers on my skin
I touch the line between life & death
I worry why people die,
I cry wondering why
I am dead & lifeless.

I understand death is true
I say I might die with you
I dream of the dark shadows in the nights sky,
I try to figure out why I dream this
I hope this all end's soon
I am dead & lifeless.
