The dagger was thrown and sliced my heart.
The knife came unexpectedly, and I was unprepared again,
completely thrown off guard.
Why do these things continue to happen;
what do I do that makes the pattern repeat?
Have I annoyed Karma or what?
Happiness is not to remain, I guess
It doesn't want to stay in one place-
its visits are too quick and then out the door it goes.
I guess I'll just wait around for its next visit.
Hopefully, I'll be prepared and bolt the door.
If I get lucky enough for another visit, I can't let it escape again.
