Gambling With Hearts

You take a risk


Inspite of the ones you already took.

And failed miserably at.

Your Brain warns you.

Reminding all those nights

Spent crying, pathetically


Over lost dreams

And failed hopes.

Behind the closed doors

As you aim for the extremes

To be or not to be.

The Brain, forced you out of that

A million times before.

And still,

He goes unheeded

As you gamble

Your heart

With your life

On the stakes.
