    It seems forever since I placed a bet
    Nine months two weeks four days
    And yet
    In some ways , it feels like yesterday.
    The “Love” I lived for is not dead
    Just sleeping.
    Reclining , in a deep slumber
    With one eye open
    Watching
    Always listening
    Perhaps, even longing for my call.
    Dare I ask if you hear the echo of my voice
    Or meet me in the dreams I dream of you
    Romanticized delusions , seeping through my nightmares
    Like crisp Autumn leaves that fall in sodden puddles
    Crisp euro notes that wilt in slot machines
    Lying in wait for the “fatcat” to collect
    Along with all my dreams and fantasies
    All lost
    When I succumb to the “Love” that leaves me
    Forever powerless?
