  • in reply to: Not enough money for a coffee #9313

      I cannot see, remember how to post a poem so I shall use the reply box.

      It’s not about the money
      It’s about forgetting
      Imagining a different reality
      one in which WE ALWAYS WIN
      A contented, organised, secure life with the notion of being IN CONTROL

      It’s not about the winning
      It’s about the losing really
      When we have nothing left our pockets match the emptiness in our hearts
      Then we snap awake from the walking dream to find ourselves stranded yet back to square one
      Square one is familiar territory
      We know,, what to do here.
      We breathe, we cry, we dream of doing better some day soon. Next time.
      Over three years I’ve waited for him
      As if gambling isn’t punishment enough
      I have a plan. Plan B for the plan B
      Working towards ascendance
      If the people we loved truly listened there would be no corner for poetry
      There would be very little misery
      Hello victim mode, introducing moi
      A paid up member of pity me anonymous
      Readers you indulge me terribly and I thank you for it, truly x

          No good time here.

          It’s an expensive can of coke
          The biscuits I threw to the gulls
          I used to drink the complementary hot chocolate back when I feigned a carefree demeanor
          What’s to say that hasn’t been said
          To see my loved one nearly dead
          Not just once but twice since December
          The slots hypnotise
          Yet then I remember
          If I had a head start
          To clear the two overdrafts
          Then a little win on top
          I’d get some new bras from M&S
          UPLIFTED I might then stop.
          Loving that man with all of my might honestly made things worse
          That’s another story a totally different verse.
          The plan right now is to take a bow then a seat whilst I recoup through hard labour.
          Once I’m straight I’ll try my luck but not til then my dears.
          Thank you for reading… I hope you all win with love conquering fear.

            Hi Charles. Thank you. I’m not ready to be honest. I have to work work work because I’m in a bit of a hole. I think I can get out but things haven’t been great. In fact life has been very difficult not because of the gambling but the gambling has been the cherry on top of the shit cake. May I ask if you used to have a gambling problem Charles? I’m just interested in terms of your perception and the conceptual stories you have flashing before your eyes. More poetry soon… LT
