Take a Chance

July 30, 2014

Playing Yahtzee with my thoughts
Shake ‘em up in the tumbler
And spill them out, see what I got –
Nothin’ – I got nothin’.
Pick-up sticks with razor blades
Dodge ‘em cars what got no brakes
Midway of middle age
At the Carnival of Disaster.
I tried my luck
And lost every game;
Just want to win my way home.
But there’s no place
Where my heart feels safe
So I buy another ticket
On the nowhere-go-round
Going in static circles.
I told you I loved you
And you just looked away.
