A poem about the feelings and effects of shame, enjoy!

Is there a thing as painful 
As the moment you stand alone 
By a cold wind blown 
Away from where you called your home 
My eyes are not green like leaves 
Nor blue like mountain flowers 
Slowly they are turning grey 
From the endless lonely hours 
Shame I feel strongly 
But little do I care 
If shame takes you from me 
Let this be my farewell 
Unlike my mind, my body is weak 
My skin is slowly melting away 
I just hope I don't have to see 
The dawn of another painful day.
