Carousels

People are Carousels

You fear the lost
the judgement in their eyes
the vanishing smile
while the sun burns your skin
and dies.

Why are you hurting?

People are carousels.
They turn and turn and turn and turn
never stop
and turn again
throwing out all the ones
not holding tight.

Why are you staring?
You like what you see?
