Playing Russian-roulette with love,
sanity rides upon each spin.
And yet walling up your feelings,
imprisons loneliness within.

It's ok to want more than dreams,

Yet don't abandon love for lust,
no matter what others may say.

Forget the past no one's perfect,
and sometimes dreams just fall apart.
Let hope help gather the pieces,
and allow time to mend your heart.
