i bet on black

i bet on black
and almost lost it all
never seeing how attached i was to the outcome
until i began to fall

into the abyss of your despair,
your plans, and your deceit
too late for me to climb out and save myself
instead, you made me complicit

to the plans you made
for your expiration date
so when the day finally came
all we could do was wait

but I couldn’t wait anymore
I had to bet on red
before the sun rose and set
before you’d do the things you said

i hope you’re happy now
you even got to say the last word
thank you for showing me, in the end,
who and what you really were.

  1. That is the problem with trust
    we don’t know if we should
    in whom to trust is unknown
    always knowing would be good
    know that we have learned
    we’ve gained that experience
    in the future that would mean
    we will have better deliverance.

I'd love to hear what you think!
