Fool's wager


It was too easy
to not hear her voice
laughing in my ear today

as in months past.
today passed
with her absence

less than a whisper
but shriller than a scream.
the chill her leaving

has wrapped around my heart
extinguished a fire
which once burned so fierce.

Now pierced and deflated
with all spirit sapped
the questions abound

was our love but a trap
set by some sadistic Gods
wagering bets and setting odds

on how long we could last
and how blind we could be
as we tried one more time

to strive to survive
the vagaries of life
and find some happiness.
