Karma and the tables turning

you're a gypsy of love.

one of many.
you and your clan of thieves, so smart and clever,
all in competition for the spot as the prime ringleader,
yet preaching community.
each of you bearing your sage advice
and your sympathy for those who aren't enlightened.

you've held your meetings and gatherings
and all arrived on one single method.
seduce your way in, not caring for a single moment,
next take and take and take
when your willing victim is caught off guard.
and then travel onward,
leaving your victim behind to suffer the consequences of blindly being fooled.

your next choice won't be this naive, though.
the tables always turn.


"Every guy I fall for becomes Jesus Christ within the first twenty-four hours of our relationship. I know that this happens, I see it happening, I even feel myself, sometimes, standing at some temporary crossroads, some distinct moment at which I can walk away,  just say no,  and keep it from happening, but I never do. I grab at everything, I end up with nothing, and then I feel bereft. I mourn for the loss of something I never even had. I am a sick, sick girl."-Prozac Nation

"I take one, one , one cause you left me..."-Gordon Gano
