have you ever felt worthless

like a used match

this time its different

you say

you repeat

you demand

you force upon yourself

you try

try

try again to build up your life

but it is burnt like a match

quicker than a candle

faster than a lightning bolt

you are diminished

sunk below

pushed beneath the flow of things

you scream out

you try to get others to hear

but they are busy

they don't want to listen

you have cried wolf too many times

they figure its the same

they assume it will pass

they don't realize its real

they don't see the used match

you feel worthless

you feel wasted

you feel your life falling to the ground

i feel famished

i feel thirst

i feel beaten to the earth
