Dead or Alive

I can't tell where I am

In life

Or in death

I'm struggling on the borderline

Not knowing where I'll end up

I can't be alive

With this emptiness

This blank slate in my mind

No cares or emotions

No love

No laugh

No feeling

And yet, I can't believe I'm dead

These people don't fear me as I walk slowly past

And yet they don't seem to notice either

Their eyes don't meet mine

Am I really here?

What am I?

A ghost?

I feel so real

And yet so alone

And in a way

I just can't tell

I'm on the borderline

Not wanted

Dead or alive
