Dead and Alone

Kids laughing
having fun
laying here
dead as a rock
though rocks aren't dead
no one can find me
I'm hidden
deep beneath the earths crust

I'm writing this
as my soul
seeps out of the ground
and watches my unbreathing
dead body

flowers are layed above me
people are weeping

no one like me
why now
why me
leave me alone
I'm dead as a tree
trees aren't dead
don't weep
don't die because of me
you never liked me
now you do?

I'm dead
dead as dead can be
I'm alone
alone as alone will ever be

I like it. A few grammatical errors, too much use of the word "dead." Otherwise, it's alright. Fairly solid poem. Nothing else that I have to say. 3.8/5. Good job.

I love the last stanza. Simple, but heartbreaking.
