The Ferris Wheel

I was young
So I got married on a ferris wheel
And round and round and round we went
In circles
I was foolish
Ferris wheels take you nowhere
Other than the highs and lows of life
Love has a way of spinning you around
The Ferris wheel of love
Tossed me to the ground


Joined the circus of loneliness
Saw you in a dream
Travel to far away places
To look in the mirrors
Of martini bars
Saw a phone on the wall
So I just called
To say 
I love you

    Great metaphor! I liked the unpredictability of your imagination... it's the little things in life that make up the bigger things... sweet and endearing ending!
