Heads You Win.... Tails I Lose


Stakes were high right from the start
When you dealt the cards
I dealt my heart
Caution I had to disregard

You were a one armed bandit
That would ride into town
Waiting till street lamps lit
A heart to steal, when sun goes down

A roll of the dice
May leave me in shambles
Yes, a huge sacrifice
Because love is a gamble

Itís just a matter of time
I know it is not me you choose
So go ahead, throw the dime
Heads you win, tails I lose

If I can get "head"....I win...If I can get some tail....I still win?.....but either way, I can win by reading your nicely done poem!

Leave it to Toe for an erotic interpretation.
My interpretation is a very clever verse, so well written.
Loved it
Liz

Love you too, Toe

Seems that way sometimes.  Someone told me love comes when you least expect it...I think thats the way the wins come in Las Vegas also.  Makes me think love is like the Candid camera show...you never know when you least expect it...smile you're on candid camera.   James

Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose...but we'll never find out unless we're willing to take the gamble

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.
