The dead don't bleed
They cannot see
Surely I must be dead

They sleep in towns
Under the ground
Frankly I am quite dead

They lie in wait
In lines quite straight
Seriously, I'm dead

They dream of life
I wish for life
This is because I'm dead

This was a late night creation with no real origin other than a mind let loose through lack of sleep.

Very interesting! I like that the last line of every stanza is similar and the repetitive of it is really great! Great job. 4 stars
