Dead to you

My lungs breathe cold earth
I am Still
Beneath the roots and moist soil
I am dead
for now
At least
To you
Buried by your words
And cold hate
I am chilled
Under the weight of the clay
White and unmoving
And to you
That way I will stay

  1. Damn, wake up and enjoy life. Your poem was great. I’m 75 today, those should be the words of old folks, you are far to young. Hell of a poem. J.C.
