Apathetic Empathy

When the nerves have died
What else is there to do
Except float on in the empty
Abyss?

Why does the skin not melt with the heat of the fire?
Why do the rivers on the face not dry up?
Never ending cycle of
Pain.

The darkness cloaks the dagger until it plunges deep,
Dragging across vital organs,
Tearing and ripping,
Flesh exposed.

Can the dead feel pain?
Do their hearts beat?
Do their brains function?
It seems so, yet not so –
