Can you be charged for crimes you committed while legally dead?
Asking for a friend. 
It's probably time,
Past time,
We quit the pastimes-
People are dying out there
And I'm watching Netflix.
What's the difference
Between me and the dark?
Between you and oblivion?
Us and the Void?
Us and them-
Guess again!
Now and then,
I find myself wondering,
Wandering around my own home like a stranger,
Using context clues, like a third grader, to find the meaning of word.
Can any word be a bad word if you're mean enough?
Asking for a stranger.
It's not like the road to heaven's paved with bad intentions.
No exceptions,
To ascension,
No intentions,
Beyond beating boredom-
For just a day,
Just a minute,
Five more minutes!
What's the difference between you and your bed?
On good days it's a couple inches,
On bad days a couple less.
Sick and stuck or Relaxation-
In relation,
Connotations
Are the only thing that make us human,
The only things that keep us from God.
How do I leave behind baggage of the words they use to make up scripture?
Asking for someone who can't forget.
How do I keepy body sacred
While I turn the other cheek?
Can I build relationships
and temples?
When do I honor my father and mother
And when do I let the dead bury the dead?
I'm not asking for an atheist,
I'm asking for me-
Sitting in the dark,
But not in the dark about it,
When will it be time
To make time-
Are we out of time?
What’s the answer?
What's the point?
What's the difference
Between us and the Void?
I guess,
It's just
That we have questions.
