Dead Batteries

I have no memory from before that first spark
Before animation brought me out of the dark

Suddenly becoming deliciously awake 
Not yet part of the fun but eager to partake

Bursting forward with boundless energy and vim
Ready to entertain when summoned by a whim

At first, loved and cherished above any and all
But time has diminished my power to enthrall

Placed upon a shelf, the novelty has faded
Used up and forgotten, abandoned and jaded

Waiting in vain for a recharge, for renewal
Struggling to extract the last trace of fuel

Vitality fades, despair, my future in doubt
Stagnant existence until the faint light blinks out.
