World of the Dead

No one will believe if I tell
I've been to the world of the dead,
But I won't tell,
No one will believe.

I come back through the door,
Back to the world of the living,
Huddled into bed,
Darkness rises,
I sleep for now.

Alarms ring,
Ring, ring,
I wake and change,
Stairs thump as I run downstairs,
I eat toast,
Door rings,
Ring, ring.

Doors open,
Friends wait,
We walk to school.

Trees sway,
birds chirp.

At school, all is still,
Dazed kids walking to class.
