Cruel World - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

Destiny keeps on spinning
Why does it seem like every time I get close.
Again the bad guys keep on winning.

She speaks of things I have never seen.
She acts like she is total into me.
Another flavor of curiosity.

Someone that has it all mapped out.
The happily ever after.
In my dreams I can wish.

As I close my eyes and try to sleep.
I'm wishing for that castle to keep.
She doesn't understand.

The good life when things are so easy.
A silver spoon of just the right size.
A marriage that goes just right.

But she will not make a single sacrifice.
No she is not willing to get in the ice.
So alone I walk on this road so cold.

Abandoned by love.
Or maybe I abandon it.
I don't really know because I'm already numb.

I live in the world of constantly being shocked.
A million kinds of torture as tests.
But I am still standing.

She will never get it.
It not all about success.
Yes it gives you a head start.

But anyone can fall off of a horse.
I'm down here and I already know how to carry my own weight.
What happens when you reach your mistake?

Will you become another ghost?
Were you a leech with the world as your host?
With champagne did you make your last toast?

I did all I can.
Does it make me any better of a man?
Emotions dripping right out of my hand.

A blood soaked letter.
He's already forgotten.
And to think you just met.

If indifference is the ammunition.
What do you think is the weapon?
Living life in a cruel world.
