Fun & Games

funandgamesPlease—
Stop the merry-go-round.
I want to get off.
It’s no fun anymore;
I’m just getting dizzy.
Please end the mind games;
I can’t even think anymore.
All you’re doing
is giving me a headache.
They say if you hold on to
your broken dreams
you often get cut by
their sharp edges.

So please,
stop the merry-go-round.
I can’t stand to see my heart bleed
anymore.
