Roulette

Roulette

A Poem by Pinkjumpers

You promised me
Your hand and the stars
And with those words you held
My heart
But not with yours.

 

You spoke in rhyme,
With a rhythm to match
My own
But all along you
Spat a lie
In truth I was alone.

 

I was just a game,
And you cheated and
Played me
Like an instrument
Out of tune.

 

But then you dropped me
Like a beat.

Complete emptiness.

 

With nothing below my feet.

A sad and strong poem. I like the flow of thoughts and the use of the roulette. Hard to find solid ground when we don't have a safety net. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
