a difficult game

So blank.
So numb – and without needles!
Nothing, nothing, none
To be done is the dream,
The waiting amidst the screams
of fright and failure
is the falling.

A longing to fly,
to soar above these worldly papers,
wordy, pitiful waste.
Wanting to float away…

Wanting to win.
What a game!
Underage gambling –
The stakes have never been so high.

to be Free,
to be Relieved,
to Leave,
But
to Succeed…

Never were there so many Faithful;
prayers and beads and crossess.
Shallow promises – to reduce their losses.
The Sinner converted – a miracle!

The time is short,
the longest month yet lived.
Cold sweats; livid, then limp.
Bets are closing.

Best of Luck.
