dehydrated

how can you keep alive what everything says is dead?
your heart no longer beats within my chest
just a caverneous ache that shudders my body with every breath
the air my lungs release is hollow and dry
my words crack and decay in the air before they ever reach ears
almost before they’re even spoken
almost before they’re even thought
