Desperate String Of Words

You are nothing
You make me feel like I am nothing
nothing is worse than feeling like i'm something
and I smother it into this desperate string of words
which surely follow desperate events
the type which make me smoke again
like, why am I in this body
I use it for nothing but to destroy it
there's not a whole lot of luck i find
for me to care a whole lot which way about it

so life seems to have got me down
just got to sit here and frown
the world used to be a very big place
It's slowly shrinking
in america's putrescence
and I think i would've preferred it better
if life went back to being a normal
where all you had to do was work and get fatter
and feed your pigs and give your kids an irish setter
maybe start a fleet and take it all out on the seaside
raid some ships and party 'till you died.

but not this life
not this life
where nothing is straight
everything said in lies
as apposed to melodic eloquence like ancient times

another pill another pediatrician
another kick back for filling
another patient's prescription
and i'm expected to accept
my unfavorable existance
of loneliness and despair
distrust and defeat
when all I need
is just for someone to
care about me for once
but who would dare
I have no money
I have no style
I can't drive
Inside I'm a cripple
I'm self centered and I expect the world to do what I want
fuck me then in this case
there's nothing i want.

  i'm guessing you have an excellent perception of what is going on around you, but maybe not quite as good what is truly in your soul. depressing poetry gets slagged off so much. depressed teenagers scribbling manically with the blood of a freshly killed dove, but none the less if the words you choose come from you heart or soul... you've got yourself art.

repitition drew my focus and to me it gives a more emotional feel.

im a big fan of swearing in literature, it just adds that extra drive and power to it

good job, with a peom like this i know you can do better so keep em coming
