"Your Losing Bet"

you think you can coax
a diamond in the rough
because it’s buried deep
and the waiting’s been enough
but don’t let your eyes stray
she’ll tie your shoelaces together
and you’ll go tumbling
down down down
you’ll plummet like a poisoned oak
when no one was around
to hear it fall
don’t mistake her pleasantries
or the sweet taste of her skin
she’ll test you close
and leave you fighting
but you can’t win
not with this one
when all you need is an honest mind
and a pensive heart
it’s simple when you look inside
but a diamond won’t crack
so you’ll never see it break
only see it shine forever
