Emotional Roulette

Twirling around An endlessly spinning wheel A life-long game A never-ending gamble Is trust enough? Do I throw in more? Have I put in enough? One small white ball One cold silver bullet Where will it stop? Is it red? Or black? Will our love surpass this obstacle? When is it enough? An endless obsession To gamble away our love There’s always that risk Pull the trigger See what the outcome is Love and live Or chose to die Is it your turn? Or do you risk the shot? The one chance of loss Blowing your heart out Straight out of your chest This is the game we play When we fall in love The never-ending Emotional Roulette
