Cold Heart - Poem by James Lewis

I'm freezing as I'm shiv'ring all alone and in the dark, sit back and peep the lyrics of a cold and lonely heart,

that used to burn with life and love and happiness inside, but one too many hurtful showers caused it all to die.

I run and get the kerosene to try and spark it up, I even think that if I try I might could talk it up,

but as the embers brighten and a flame's about to catch, a painful breeze comes through and blows it out just like a match.

The only light that's blazing is the one that sparks the earth, I breathe in deep exceedingly and cough until it hurts,

cause maybe then the pain won't be as bad as what it's worth, a sadd'ning thing, to witness as your heart is gettin murked.

The bright'ning rays of yesterday, existing in the past, the hoplessness tomorrow brings is present, and I laugh,

I thought to win the game you had to score more points and stuff, but you can't win the title if your defense isn't tough.

I made it to the playoffs to get knocked out in the end, I only lost by 1 but you just need 1 point to win,

I don't think that I'll ever want to play this game again, I'm too young to retire with no fire, sink or swim.

For now I'll stay real busy, keep these things from off my mind, I know that it'll get easier, progressing me with time,

the coldness in my heart that makes a chill ascend my spine, will guide me through the living years, especially in rhyme.
