The House Wins.

I watch the lives of the people around me,
it’s like watching heaven from hell.

I am forced to listen to the music of their voices
as they greet me with automatic condescension,
or disingenuous equanimity.

I realized a long time ago
that I am nothing but a slave
to their ego’s,
when they look at me,
the feel better about themselves.

Now, having understood all of lifes
romantic delusions,
I have come to know a truth,
and it lies at the heart
of deception,
where hope is perverted
and love is nothing
but a trick of the eyes.

Life is nothing but a casino
where the dice are loaded
and no soul can count the cards
with the exception of the beautiful
and the wealthy.

The House Wins.
