But the front he has put on for so long prevents people from seeing the weakness and struggle he is enduring. In a sense, he is secretly drowning. The line, "It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way," refers to the loneliness in this man's life. Perhaps he pushed people away from him and lived his life in isolation. Maybe he never opened himself up enough to engage in personal relationships and to love and feel love for another. Or, perhap .....

Although Stoutenburg is with his girl friend throughout the whole poem, he does not make mention of her until the second body paragr .....
