It's cold where I keep
all my shame.
It's hard to play
a losing game.

I don't feel much,

could send them flying.
Towards the ground,
My strength is dying.

  Judging by the comments, this is clearly a very popular poem. It truly is a fantastic piece of writing, and although I usually am not much for love poems, I thought this one was very well and uniquely done. Great work!
