Kenny Rogers Said It Best

gambling

I have spent nearly
17 years loving you.
Putting my hopes
and dreams
in boxes
behind the sofa;
waiting to move them
into a place with you.
I have idealized you
as my perfect mate
for far too long.
Have looked past other
possibilities;
all in the hopes
of one day
capturing your heart.
Foolish me
for
irrationally
holding on.
