DEAD AWAKE
(5/9/13)


the eyes
are open
but the soul
is closed

shuffling
through the day
not a care
for the living

a fog
of ennui
enveloping
the senses

I see
the bullet
of existence
coming toward
me

I cannot
move

I can
only hope
that the shot
is true

and that
my suffering
is diminished
by the death
of my
disbelief
