It slipped right through your fingers;
You watched it float away
Lightning will not strike here twice –
Perhaps it’s best that way.
I saw your name in my contacts list
And I thought DO NOT REPEAT
So I wiped my eyes,
Then filed you under DELETE
We all need a love-story, even when it’s nothing more than fiction.
Occasionally your name floats into my mind, like a rain cloud darkening a sunny day.
You can live in the biggest house in the world
And fill it with things you don’t need
But if you have nobody to share it all with
Such a lonely, sad life you will lead
My life may be a deck of cards,
or a losing hand a poker;
I’ve never had a pair of hearts
and I always find the joker.
Fortune favours the bold,
but heartache favours the lonely.
