Golden

russian-rouletteI never really knew you
Few ever truly do
And the time we spent between
The two extremes were more than few

The fragments put together
Drew me in more than ever
While you stood in fair repose
Velvet hand on silent trigger

Golden bullet in your gun
You said there was only one
Because you liked to play with fate
You always kept me on the run

But I loved you just the same
Without even knowing your name
When you whispered to me at night
And you said you’d take the blame

I never really knew you
It was a point you tried to argue
While I was staring down the barrel
Of a challenge I would undo

You said love would choose well
And I listened closely as I fell.
