"I'm nobody, who are you?
Are you nobody to?"
-Emily Dickinson

I have died
I'm no longer alive inside
My soul has crumbled into dust
My heart has dissolved, now the color of dust

My lungs have emptied of the air
My thoughts no longer worry and care
My brain no longer tries to think
My emotions no longer rise or sink

My eyes no longer look around
My mouth no longer makes a sound
My hands no longer hold onto
My feet no longer walk into

I have died
No longer alive inside
But say my name out loud
And I will awake

The author's comments:
This was a piece inspired by the song "My Immortal" by Evanescence. I was feeling kind of sad that day, so it partly came from that as well. I hope people get a feeling of peace from it. If they feel that way, I hope they can relate to it.
