This is a poem about being taken advantage of. I am always there for people, but they never seem to have time for me.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Depression and Suicide Poems

Down Again
I've been pushed down so many times
I feel this time will be the last
as I lay here fading
my thoughts are invaded by memories of my past
I feel the pressures of shame and rejection building
as I lay here on the floor
I have no strength to get up
I'm not worth it any more

    this poem touched me and i feel the same way that you are feeling in that poem. friendship and trust is just an illusion to me. no one really is my true friends and there are alot of people out there who dont know what it feels like to be someone with the fear of being forgotten, being lonely and being pushed down. athazagoraphobia is what we all grasp. (phobia of being forgotten) i tried being happy again but i found out later it wasnt making me even a bit happier. although people say that you can get over it easily, people like you and i know that its very hard to overcome depression. but just hang in there. theres hope in finding happiness in the future

    This poem just touched me. after i read it, i felt that a couple of months ago that was all i felt. but now whenever i fall down i think of everything good that has happened to me and i get right back up again.

    i thought this poem was excellent and made me think there are people out there that dont have the life some people have and would rather be dead i think its horrible that somebody could feel this way and how people make them feel this way but u get people out there that are just there to hurt people nobody is worth taking ur life for.

    This poem embodies my exact emotions. It brings comfort to know others feel as I. And even though we are isolated we are not alone.

    I love this poem! it's really amazing what a few lines and carefully chosen words can do - I got goosebumps! and it reflects the exact way I felt so many times before pushing myself to get up and try again -- it's beautiful =)

    I think this poem is very unique. It has a lot of emotion . It touched my heart a lot and made me relize that being in a relationship like that is wrong. It was great to relize that someone else has went through what I have.
