Afterlife - Poem by Mike Dolch

They all still have beating hearts.
Blood pumps through their veins.
They're fixated in their own heads.
They're completely unaware
of the corpse, sitting right next to them.

My heart stopped beating years ago.
My blood stopped pumping.
My thoughts stopped racing. I know,
I died some time ago.

The world will still spin.
The friends will still talk.
Life will always go on.
But not for me.
For I've begun my afterlife.

Though,
my darling solely tethers me.
Brings me the elixir of revival.
Brings me back to life.
