Buried Alive! (April 24th 2014)


They laid me in my casket,

Flatly on my back

They placed a rose beside my head

And said goodbye, in tears of black

"Why are you crying?"

I think to myself,

in utter loss and confusion

"Why are you weeping?"

I think, in my so subtle delusion


I cannot move a muscle

But I see the whole scene

Through my closed eyelids

I see what I have seen!

They think I'm dead, as I look

And they're going to bury me!

I try to cry out this time,

But no sound can escape me!
The feeling burns inside,

of utter pain and worry,

I can not take it any longer!

I'm alive, you fools! Don't you see!?

I waited for some time,

In fear and horror of the future!

Nothing really happened,

Just sobbing and my torchure

My parents came that day

They looked at me and said

"We never loved you, boy,

We're really glad you're dead!"

And then they walked away

With no other words

I felt like crying, sobbing, screaming

But could not, can not, make a sound!


They buried me one day later

And I watched the whole pained thing,

From the eyes outside me!

The paying for my sin?

They took me to the grave

And laid me with a grin!

They covered up the casket

As I watched them laugh and sing!

And yet, they knew not that I was here

watching them bury me alive!


I have never died, though

Or left from my grave,

I sit here.

Seeing, staring...

Feeling, thinking, but not talking,

Just viewing!

For, I've been buried alive!


It was just that very moment,

that I woke up in my bed

With a cold sweat dripping off me,

I thought about the dread…

But now the view made some sense

and the illogical behavior,

just a nightmare, composed from my tense!

tense and odd behavior?

No matter, no matter, I'd still just felt the pain

Of being buried alive
