Inadequate

I try hard, to make you understand So we can remain friends- hand in hand But as time moves on it all fades away And I'm left, the inadequate fool Often I find I cannot repress these tears at night I fear I'm losing you my best friend...and the darkness drowns the light I wish to hold onto what we had, for you to stay But I am nothing but the useless inadequate tool I cannot make you laugh, or smile, the way I used too I am nothing now, I cannot do Broken and forgotten I wonder alone Every night I cry because, despite what you say, I have lost you I was pushed aside and abandoned for those far superior Outside helplessly flailing I am merely a memory; I the inferior Never wanting you to be afraid or hurt, I am left on my own And there is now nothing I can do There was never anything that could be done Her venomous words: “NO ONE cares...NO ONE likes you” Hold a truth so vile and scarring it adds to my worthless The stinging echos, “ALL your friends FAKE IT” Burn a pain that will never heal....CAN never heal Flighty psalms of devastating torture continue As you; my hope, my light and saving grace, flee from me Making every false glory, every spoken slice across the skin More true than a haunting scream that deafens my ears “YOU ARE NOTHING” I cannot shake her from me She resides within the dying fragments of my mind Where light ceases to exist and darkness births the desire to kill I cannot be anything good and therefore you cannot save me “You are NOTHING” I am nothing “YOU are WORTHLESS” I am worthless I have nothing to live for All my friends are fake-- Oh please do not let it be so! I know my inadequate life can never amount to yours I know I can never be anything spectacular but I implore you! Dearest friend please to not let this darkness consume me! Erase her from my memory; clear all doubt! Don't let me lose you in this chaotic chasm of fear My flighty mind and eye flit about in a haze of never ending doubt Thrown down in deplorable silence, drenched it full blood self-hatred I am nothing, I am worthless.... I am inadequate Often I find I cannot repress these tears at night I fear I'm losing you my best friend...and the darkness drowns the light I wish to hold onto what we had, for you to stay But I am nothing but the useless inadequate tool Selfishly I clung to you as life line-for I had no other And the she crushed me...she stabbed me...when I thought she could be another I, the inferior, am naught to the superior and I fade away I –the inferior-- am the worthless nobody...the inadequate fool

    I'll always be around for you. If you ever feel like this. If anyone says otherwise, I will put it right! Just lemme know! D: I've read this before and I read it once more. I hope I could help more than I have. Always, Laura
