It's Dead

I see a woman reading; at the park; Her eyes are moving; but I see no spark; nor wonder;

I see a woman reading
at the park,
Her eyes are moving
but I see no spark,
nor wonder,
nor bliss

I see a man standing
on the street
waiting for a jeepney,
I look at his eyes,
there's nothing there,
no care nor woe

I see a clown
at a mall downtown,
a big smile
painted on his face
I look at his eyes,
I don't see a smile

I see a teacher
discussing at class,
Clear voice and words,
Lots can be learned
But I look at her eyes,
I see nothing inside

It's hard to deny,
there's many
of them,
People walking,
working, buying,
breathing, existing

No tears in their eyes,
No fear in their hearts,
No one who loves,
No one to love,
No pain, no hate
Only desolation

I see dead people
adorned with flesh
They do not live
But still exists
They don't know
they're dead

I look in the mirror
I see a dead person
staring back
I looked in her eyes
I see nothing
Just plain void

DEAD
