"I Lost"- Poem



Always tired

Nothing wired

I’m insane

Say I’m plain

Who’s been hired

Are we sired

Need a cane

I’m in pain


Played the game

Not the same

Rules apply

But they lie

Feeling shame

Who’s to blame

It’s a tie

All will sigh


Change my mind

Am I kind

I have lost

There’s a cost

Can I find

Left behind

Feeling frost

They accost


Please don’t leave

They deceive

I am scared

We’ve been paired

It’s my peeve

They will weave

Have we cared

Love’s not shared


The story’s told

It was sold

Now been said

We need fed

I am cold

In I fold

Made of lead

Skin is shed


Showed my side

I have cried

They don’t see

What's in me

I confide

Love had died

Hear my cree

Take a knee


Feel alone

I don’t own

Try to shine

Things I pine

It was shown

I’ve been sewn

Say I’m fine



Nothing left

Felt a theft

It’s now gone

Sword was drawn

Wasn’t deft

It's bereft

Just a pawn

Dark has spawn


Took it all

No one saw

Fake a smile

It’s my style

It's the law

Need to thaw

Turn the dial

Lose the trial


Iḿ not good

Thought I could

Guess we’re none

They have shun

Here I stood

Knew they would

It is done

They have won

  • Comment from author about the poem: I knowwwwww, mine are always sad, and longgggg. :-( lol. Can't help it. It's what inspires me. Happy isn't emotional enough for me. Always sounds corny, and I always have too much to say when I write poetry. If you like this poem, comment please. Seems like I'm getting less comments lately. Haven't gotten any on my latest poems. Even if you don't like it, comment please, as long as you're not going to be rude though. lol. I love reading the comments. They help me learn new things.

    But you seized the power of word to stand up and say... I'm not done yet?

    Ive stopped playing so I won't lose anymore!

    • Merissa

      I sort of understand what you're saying, but the last sentence confused me. lol

      • sylviasearcher

        Oh l stopped playing the game of caring or believing I needed to win or lose.

        I just hide in my forest and scare anyone who asks for a game of chess.

        Bet I've confused you more now! 🙃
