Terry, I can't say I understand this whole poem, but it is very interesting. It seems to me that both parties are grasping for love, but just missing the connection from the other. I like a thought-provoking write, and this fills the bill.
p.s. the gambler wouldn't be on the "lamb" but on the "lam" and of course thats slang, so I don't think you'd find it in the dictionary. Truthfully, I've never been on the lam or on a lamb, which makes me a non-authority. : )

Another good poem about the love that we all need, but is sometimes gone so quickly with no reason and we are all left to wonder what went wrong? Like I've said before, you are very good at taking life and the things that it brings us and wrapping it up, very neatly, with great meaning into a poem. I hope that life brings to you, what you are searching for.
