Gambling The World
Author: Fallen_Angel


Into the mans ear
the world quietly whispered,
"dear man do you fear?"
"Do you stir at night hiding your self from life that lays in the darkened light?"
"No universe," the man replied,
" I don't dear for existence is fickle like autumn leaves upon a busy street."
"I know you,as soon as the breeze blows at ease
you'll be certain to take my 'dampened life' away from me."
sacastically his words were led
as he gently placed his hands behind his head
But spitefully the world questioned
"Do you quiver in the atmosphere like sand in the wind?
"For you are my prisoner,you're nothing else but the cell in-between the jar I hold...
I guess you would say man I own your soul."
"Yes," he snickered sliding his hand through his hair
"but my soul plays only in a game of cards
and my dear, no matter how much you gamble in your game you'll never win my heart.'
