The Rug

Defeated, overrun:
this feeling, will it last? Life always
has the last laugh 
at trust freely given, no guarantees -
it can please 
it can smile, enjoying the joke
before it pulls the rug, makes you meet
your bad luck.  Will you last, I wonder,
or will my past catch up, tears
take over?  Revealed, I know
the risk I take - not to 
why here?
