Gullible Guillotine

When you kiss you kiss with a sigh. It gets heavier every day, weighing on your tiny conscience. Why is it so hard for you to tell your lover of your unhappiness? I understand something like that must be easier on paper than in action. But we are all who we are according to the sum of our actions. All of our actions. Someone show me the ten commandments of God, and I will try my best to abide by them. Someone show me the ten commandments of love, and I’ll tell you it doesn’t exist. There are ideas of course, but try getting everyone to agree. Your lover isn’t only your lover, but your best friend, and you wouldn’t go out and wrong your best friend on purpose, no one does. that’s why friendship only gets a point, never it’s own list of commandments.

It’s funny watching people of the utmost faith contradict themselves in the worst way. It’s sad but beautiful at the same time. Like watching the arms of Michaelangelo’s David’s arms come to life just to rip off his limbs one by one. That’s what you do when you tell someone of your undying love for them, and sleep in the arms of another. This doesn’t shock me, you see it everyday. Real life, movies, songs, all glamorized. What we don’t take into account is the stupidity of man when we come up with these ideas. How gullible we all are. I suppose that’s called, “going with the flow.” It’s a wonder why the End of Days didn’t come along sooner. “They’re all bloodsuckers babe, they’ll chew you up and spit you out. Come on let’s go.” “It was the worst mistake of my life.”

When you play poker, specifically, Texas Hold ’em, the goal of the game is to make the pot grow and hope your cards are higher than everyone elses cards. you don’t get to see their cards, so you have to play like you do. Thus poker face. Bluffing is when you know your cards aren’t that great but you scare the other players into thinking your cards will win. When they call your bluff, it’s probably because they know you can’t possibly have great cards or they’ve played with you long enough to know when you’re bluffing or telling the truth. I’ve played with a player long enough to know her ins and outs. I’ve had truths and lies to compare to her soul in hand, and even then, found myself playing anyway. I should have just taken the pot, clean.

Time to take my pet ant-eater for a walk through the city.
