Flash Friday 55: Marry Go Round

Back again
we always end up here
despite promises,
desperate vows
we always end up here
you say,
but don't do
It's a merry-go-round
spinning, spinning,
sometimes fast enough
I can pretend not to see
but at times, so subtly
slowing down,
I don't notice
until we stop
getting off
right where we started.

It's Flash Friday 55!  Go see g-man and put your link in his comments if you want to play.

Maybe if we just spin a little faster we can fling ourselves out of orbit.
