Last Spark

Push it once

then a dozen times.

Buttons won't work,

I'm paying the price.

 

Hardware's jammed

screen's on the blink

My circuit board's damaged,

Now I can't think.

 

Limbs attached

by a thin thread of wire,

One small spark

and I've set myself on fire.

 

I am slowly dying

an immortal death.

I was never alive,

But I'm taking my final breath.

 

Was not made to have emotions

But I loved the world 'till day.

Now I'm leaving it behind,

but I'm not really going away.

 

I am different from my kind

not mere metal, glass and wires.

It is a blesing and a curse,

I will never fulfill my desires.

 

I am a machine with no heart

Which means I can never die,

But no-one really bothers to fix me

So why sit and try?

 

I'll take in all I can,

before my memory goes stark

Feel the wonders of the world,

Up untill my last spark.
