Am I The Zombie? - Poem by Andrew Phillips

Just assure me;
Tell me it's not air I
Breathe.
Just assure me;
Tell me it's not humitiy I
Feel.
Just assure me;
Tell me these treasures won't
Rust.
Just assure me;
Tell me I still deserve
Life.
Just assure me;
Tell me I'm not
A zombie.
'Cause right now
I feel like it.

Just assure me
I am not
Of the living dead
Who have found
Nothing to be something,
Who are
Everywhere,
Who are
The ones dragging me
Into ranks
Of rank souls.

Just assure me;
Tell me
Kicking and screaming
Helps.
Just assure me;
Tell me
I'm not a
Consumer.

Just assure me;
Tell me
I still live
Just assure me I can still
See You;
Just tell me I build
Something
Out of nothing.

Assure me I still love you.
