Coin Flip

Coin Flip

I always knew that our love would be dicey.
With you sea lion slippery, piquant and spicy,
your imposition into my life
was bound to cause turmoil and possibly strife.

But you brought excitement and offered a piece
of pleasure that lasted devoid of surcease.
Both sides of the coin I was willing to share,
watching the disc as it spun in the air.

Heads you were up and tails you were down—
one side slightly clouded, the other a clown.
The cusp of your mood I could certainly bear
for the promise of future bright times we would share.

Until that last coin toss when you spun away
with no possibility of a next play—
your coin sitting silent upon a high shelf
while I learned to toss the coin for myself.

Prompt words today are sea lion, imposition, piquant and piece.

    I really like that one,,,,, It says so much about YOU, and possibly Bob on that ride~! Thanks~! I was just reading an article about “stupid people” and for years I fit that category, flipping the coin and moving on with a grin. But I found someone who knew how to flip it for me, where it landed the right way each time, until one day it fell away and was lost.
