Worthless

Worthless

A Poem by Mavs

My heart 
 Is still beating. 
 My lungs 
 Are still breathing. 
 My wrists
 Are not bleeding. 
 I've lost 
 My happiness 
 But I 
 Am still alive.
 Why won't I die? 
 Why can't I rest In peace? 
 My eyes, 
 They're crying;
 My ears,
 They're thumping;
 My thighs,
 They're frozen,
 But I 
 Am still living.
 It's so painful.
 It's cruel torture.
 Why do I live?
 Why was I born?
 Why can't I do anything?
 These questions, 
 They haunt me.
 I live
 For nothing.
 I, myself,
 Is worthless,
 But I am 
 Ordered to eat,
 Forced to breathe, 
 Pushed to drink, 
 Abused to sleep, 
 So they 
 Will have 
 Advantages over me.
 God, 
 Take me away. 
 Devil, 
 Sweep me off 
 This horrid world.
 I don't care. 
 Why do I live? 
 Why was I born? 
 Why can't I do anything?
 I am 
 Not desired, 
 Not worth a penny,
 Not useful, 
 Not a treasure. 
 I am 
 Just trash, 
A dead animal,
 Inhumane,
 A dead leaf,
 Leftovers. 
 Hear my 
 Soundless voice. 
 See my 
 Pitiful body, 
 Just laying there.
 Feel my 
 Breath that 
 Pollutes your air. 
 Taste my 
 Anger, 
 Sadness, 
 Dullness, 
 Pressure. 
 Understand my 
 Pain, 
 Sorrow,
 Will to die. 
 Why do I live? 
 Why was I born? 
 Why can't I do anything?
 These questions 
 I've found 
 An answer to.
 I do not live.
 My heart is dead. 
 I wasn't born.
 I was hatched 
 From this hell.
 I can't do anything, 
 Simply because 
 There is no need to 
 When I am 
 An ornament. 
 Do you hear 
 My soundless voice? 
 Do you see 
 My pitiful body?
 Do you feel
 My polluting breath? 
 Do you taste 
 My Anger,
 Sadness, 
 Dullness, 
 Pressure?
 Do you understand
 My Pain, 
 My sorrow,
 My will to die?
An vague answer.
A fake concern.
Yet,
When giving your
Condolences,
You act
as if you cared.

You used a lot of good words, and them being alone in each line put emphasis to the style.

The repetition worked to your benefit. I feel that was a good approach. "But I am
Ordered to eat, Forced to breathe, Pushed to drink, Abused to sleep, So they Will have Advantages over me." I thoroughly enjoyed this particular section. It's dark, but that's what makes it so easy to relate to, as despair has always been an integral part of the human condition.

I have been through that before, and knowing what it feels like, it just added to the sad feeling deep inside. This is a poem that touched the very depths of my soul. I'm glad I got read this poem and share the pain with you.

Having felt some of the feelings you describe in this poem I know where it is coming from. You explain the emotion well for sure. I hope you get through it like so many of us have.
