I find no joy in watching me,
The years have lost their grip.
I see the love that others hold,
But fear that mine will slip.
In life I was no good for you,
In death I fare no worse.
My tedium is driving me,
but friends shall drive my hearse.
I feel the brink lay shadow here,
and cry my self to sleep.
I lived my life so shallowly,
and find my grave is deep.

This poem is fairly dark, but I liked it for its cleverness. 'In life I was no good for you, in death I fare no worse.' I like that line. Five stars! I must inquire, does your username imply that you are obsessed with shy guys or a crazy, shy guy?

It was originally made in a moment of weakness as a email declaring my love of the "shy guy" enemies from Nintendo. However, i have since left the meaning open to interpretation. I guess you could say it's both of your choices.
