“The Love Affair”

“The Love Affair”

This man has had his way, deluded me.
My late Casino visit, once espied
Jack’s cold, one  eye with little sympathy
as when I draw a two and three,  then sigh.
His siren song lures all  with tens of tens.
Naïve`te! A roller-coaster ride
addicted to his many shills and sins.

He’ll  bust my  spirit when low blows  abide.
Love is a mountain high or pit! Like life,
may be a deck destructive to your pride.
May bring the brightest to his knees in strife
as all are Counters  in the dealer’s sight.
Oh, dark the day I fell in love with Jack.
He’s taken me aback; my heart_ransacked!

(not to mention my pocketbook, lol)love affair

    I love your wordplay as with “deck”. Even though my poker playing has been limited to wager-less 21, the lure of the face card and the desperation inflicted by 2’s and 3’s is wonderfully expressed in your poem. Your Jack’s indifference is indeed chilling.
