I am a gambler (On Tap #1)

I am a gambler (On Tap #1)

A Poem by Inkcognito
"

Hair of the Dog Group challenge: Tap 1

"

I am not a writer
nor a poet
or an artist
I am merely a
lost soul
gambling with
words
stories
sentences
mere scribbles
on sheets of paper

 

Sometimes
the gamble pays off
rendering me rich with joy
pride and satisfaction
sometimes it does not
and I remain feeling lost
disappointed and thoroughly
cheated

An addiction to the gamble with words...? Does that even count?

a great response to the prompt, the addiction to the words!! an addiction that consumes us all I'd dare say, we are all lost souls searching for the right words to accompany and convey our expressions. nice!!

poetry, u know...It's like gambling somehow. You go out for a night of drinking and you don't know where your going to end up the next day. It could work out good or it could be disastrous. It's like the throw of the dice.
