the game

it was built upon a house of cards

the joker was the key

looking at the crooked deck

the outcome was plain to see

when the dealer passed the hand

we held close to our chest

any fool that watched for long

knew it was all a test

it was all there in the cards

the fate of hearts like ours

it was over but the crying

and no one bothered with the flowers

while the crowd was watching on

enjoying the show

love bowed its head and left the room

when dealt its final blow

pieces of two broken hearts

lay scattered on the floor

they trickled down into the sea

and hit the opposite shore

... a house of cards

a misdealt hand

a twisted deal

... and so love ends.
