Wanted To Play (#poetry)

I knew at the end of the day
How every card would lay
But still, I wanted to play.

Lady Luck doesn’t like me much
Maybe that’s why I always end up stuck
Wrong place
Wrong time
Never allowed to shine.

Eclipsed by reality
Greater than I can dream
Echos of the past
Stir memories unseen.

I knew you would burn me
I never expected any less
But sometimes dreams cloud reality
And make us reach for more than what destiny desires.
