I was the kid next door's imaginary friend. -Emo Phillips

I am a human

But I am a virus
I see

The destruction all around me
I feel the breeze

Or is that what my brain tells me?
I know all they teach

To God I know nothing
I dream of life

A life I’ll never have
I say something poetic

But it comes out a jumble
I need air

Even as I lay dead
I want to know

Why exactly I’m here
I hear your heart

Beating like a drum

You are human

But you are a machine.
