Like a crawling ghost she comes freezing
Through the feelings fog whispering
Just to remind me:
- We're not gonna happen.
An undead is a being in mythology, legend or fiction that is deceased but yet behaves as if alive. A common example is a corpse re-animated by supernatural forces by the application of the deceased's own life force or that of another being (such as a demon). Undead may be incorporeal like ghosts, or corporeal like ghouls, vampires and zombies.
Bram Stoker considered using the title The Un-Dead for his novel Dracula (1897), and use of the term in the novel is mostly responsible for the modern sense of the word.
