Am I alive?
What does that mean?… to be alive?
…Is it that I am simply breathing
…Is it that the blood in my veins is warm and flowing?
Then why, sometimes, do I feel like a corpse? and on occasion cold and hollow?
Going through the daily motions, numb, and in a daze.
Looking for a remedy… some hope, connection, and some clarity.
…and maybe, some warmth for this chill that comes over me
Bring me back to life, again and again.
