This Thing Called Love

This thing called love
is so complicated.


You give your heart away
and never know whether
the recipient
will take care of it
or return it in pieces.


It's a gamble
when you wager on love.


It's a risky endeavour,
but one that
can lead to a jackpot
when you win.


It's worth a chance
so place your bet
and roll the dice.


Close your eyes
and hold your breath
and maybe, just maybe
you'll be lucky in love.
