I’ve been at the edge of the cliff.

I’ve been the toast of the town.

I’ve shared laughs.

I’ve shared fears.

I tell my secrets.

I hope they hear. 

I’ve walked away too soon.

I’ve been left behind.

I’ve slept through the daylight.

I’ve watched the night’s moon.

I questioned old friendships.

Many of them have burned me.

I’ve given love

Only to be drained of it.

I ran until I hit the coast.

Familiar faces keep me company when it’s too late.

There isn’t a risk I’m not willing to take. 

I’m not an addict, but I have a gambling problem.

The one thing I will always bet on is myself.

So far, I always win.
