Three ring

maybe it's never enough for you.
i should pick up and take off,
leave while i have that chance.
but that's just it, what chance?
i was hooked the first second
on something indescribable.
i wish you were one-sided.
now i'm a lion, ready to pounce
when the crack of a whip
shocks me into obedience.
is this really what you wanted?
because it's what you're getting.
give me my deadlines and compassion
and i'll give you my heart.
