        I saw the wild look in the Gambler’s eyes
        On that winter’s night of frost and lies.
        I sensed his pain and his frantic rush
        With an overwhelming urge to crush
        The terror that his world might crash
        His only hope (I could not dash)
        The one sure thing that he believed
        In chasing his loss he might be relieved
        Of the shame and guilt his actions brought
        Eyes glazed
        And overwrought.
        His expression revealed a soul ensnared
        Too proud to dwell on a secret shared
        So little to gain
        So much to lose
        Could an outstretched hand
        Ever be refused
        Of the very last chance
        Of one more win
        To redeem himself from his latest sin
        A broken , sick yet still proud heart
        He strove to detach and quickly depart
        With nervous gaze and shuffling gait
        A bundle of cash his latest bait
        And from the enabler’s hand it passed
        “I’ll pay you back to the very last….”
        he swore as he merged with the traffic’s glare
        And I will never forget his frozen stare….
