Carousel

Carousel

A Poem by Meraki

Round and round 
In circles we go 
This world is a carousel 
You know

Chasing love 
Fortune and fame 
Peace on Earth 
I'm sure that's why you came

Chasing chasing 
Always behind 
Stuck at a distance 
Let's pick up the pace

Come to me my 
Carousel horse 
Gilded with gold and covered in ribbons 
Smiling back flashing 
Those pearly white teeth

Chasing chasing 
It's like a dream 
But we're glued to the floors 
Just out of reach

Smiling smiling 
I bet my heart 
Just one last turn, I thought
Pushing the silver disc 
Through the slot

Laughing laughing 
Take advantage of my ignorance 
Arrogance 
My hope
I'm naive, I know

Round and round 
In circles we go
This world 
This world is a carousel 
You know

When will it ever stop?
