Stretcher Thoughts

Pronounced dead

Is the one who can’t breathe

But when around you

I can’t.

And I’m fully alive.

My eyes can’t see

Ears can’t hear.

Heart can’t beat.

Lungs can’t contract.

Lips can’t speak.

Limbs can’t move.

I’m paralyzed…

Out of love?

In fear?

Unresponsive am I.

Pronounced dead should I

But I’m fully alive…

I think.
