Poker Face

In by Marcus on August 20, 2010 at 10:47 am

Life is like a game of poker
a balance of wins and losses
with folds in between
I don’t remember the wins
I don’t regret the folds
But the losses they remain
ever present in my mind
festering in my stomach
The little ones crawl
through my brain like nanorobots
slowly deleting all the happiness
The large ones painfully
move through me
feeling like kidney stones
as they pass through my innards
making me immobile
and dysfunctional
But life is like a game of poker
And you must never show emotion
So I stay calm and maintain
My poker face
