When you tell me I'm worth nothing, this isn't news to me.
On the surface I look fine 'cause it's inside that I'm suffering.
Trying to find a way to possibly numb the pain...
Trying to break the chains, but these efforts are all in vain.

Maybe if my heart just suddenly stopped beating,
It wouldn't hurt this much and I'd get over this empty feeling...
If I could stop the rain from pouring down from the sky,
Would you be glad I'm alive? Would you finally be satisfied?

So much of me is wasted trying to be your perfect.
Even when it works you make me feel like it isn't worth it.
How can you expect I'll want to try again soon,
When all I ever get are more reasons for open wounds?

I may say that it's okay but It's 'cause I don't know what to do,
When you stand here in front of me and breathe lies like they're truth.
You tell me every little thing that you think that I want to hear,
But little do you know your words are falling upon deaf ears.

So you push me away and pretend that I don't exist...
Could somebody please help explain to me all of this?
I don't understand what you're trying to make me be...
Can't you just accept that this person is really me?

If I could make the stars shine a little bit brighter,
If I made the world just a little bit quieter,
If I could stop the rain from pouring down from the sky,
Would you finally be satisfied? Would you be glad I was alive...?

Yet again, easy to relate to, I am going through the same thing right now and this poem helps. I was close to tears reading this one. I swear it's like you know me and all the troubles in my past.

It's a very tragic ideal that heartbreak and negative emotions are the easiest form for a poet such as I to gain inspiration from, and a reader such as you to relate to it. But such is life, full of heartbreak and sorrow.. I'm sorry that you are going through so much right now, and I wish you the best <3

Love and Heartbreak are my main inspirations for poems as well, so I can understand. I wrote a few similar to this with the same subject: [link] Being ignored and alone.

Thank you <3
I'd -love- to make this into a song. Only problem is I lack the technical skill to do so 3: and I'd have to make it longer, I think.
