Saviour Machuwaire


I Am Dead Except I Am Alive


I have ceased to exist in the world I now live
My life, a shadow of what I once hoped to be
Dead in heart, dead in mind
What I felt, I feel no more
What I heard, I hear no more

My life, an empty cave on the sea shore
Waves of regret and guilt hit against my walls
An empty cave,
Only echoes of dreams I once had

What I wanted, I want no more
I see no tomorrow
Only blurred glimpses of hopes and wishes

I stand on the shore,
I see a vast ocean of despair
The waves wash the sand from beneath my feet
I keep sinking in despair

I am dead except I am alive
