By
   Shall I kiss your feet as you walk by,

Shall I believe you're true though I know you lie,

Shall I let you hold me as I cry,

Shall I apologize if I don't know why,

Shall I come crawling back when you deny

That you are wrong and that I

Am right and as you sit and sigh,

And try to look me in the eye,

And hide behind each bitter lie,

Each sweet, transparent, bitter lie,

And you've stolen my pride along with my

Principles though I don't know why

I let you control me, why I let me die.

This is a really good poem, it flows together really well and I can sort of relate to it too.
