Daily Prompt: Parlay

They said being with you was a bet that would end up being the winning of my life.

And at first I just didn’t believe them

even though you were nice to me.

This in life that maybe seem too good turn out to be the worst

So I let my guard stay up as you tried to get closer to me.

Maybe I was just being caution and you didn’t seem to mind

but as time went on I knew my guard wasn’t going to win this battle.

As all the walls fell around me and as vulnerable as I was you protected me

and in the end I won the greatest prize.

Your heart, your smile and the light in your eyes that shined only so bright for me.
