AM I THE ONLY ONE . . .who has struck out more times than he cares to remember?

My wife passed away over 35 years ago and I was single for a long time.  During most of those years, I wasn’t really looking to get attached to anyone, but sometimes I’d get to thinking that this gal or that gal, just might be the one.   This is a poem I wrote years ago about just such an occasion.

He’s a master of the cue stick, loves the game of pool,
but sometimes he’ll drink too much and occasionally act a fool.

First, he’s hot, then he’s cold or somewhere in between.
Can’t miss a shot, can’t make a shot, if ya know what I mean.

She walks in, the lights are low, he’s been there, in his dreams.
She turns him on, then turns him down, then she leaves the scene.

Dead-end streets & U-turns, his love life to a tee,
on his one-way path to Hell, where all his friends will be.
