in every way that counts,
I am dead

inside somewhere
maybe I am screaming
and weeping
and howling like an animal

but that is another person deep inside
another person
who has no access to the lips
and face
and mouth
and head

so on the surface
I just shrug
and smile
and keep moving

if only I could physically
pass away

just let it all go
like that
without doing anything

step out of life
as easily
as walking through a door

I keep waking up
in the morning

disappointed to be here
and resigned to existence
