Excerpt from a short story
Calypso by James R Muri copyright 1998

"I could have kept her.

I know that today. I knew it the last time I saw her. But things were just - oh, just not right for us at that time.

That's what I told myself then, when the opportunity was presented. Not right. Not yet. But I didn't really believe it. She waited patiently as I wrestled with the impossible temptation, content to let me decide things for myself, certain that my undiminished desire would overcome my good sense.

Now there's a laughable concept: Good sense. What the hell is that, anyway?
Was it good sense to allow her to slip away, to become someone else's sweet diversion? If so, why do I hold my head in pained remembrance? Why do I regret, these decades of days later, not tossing that disreputable good sense aside and claiming her for myself? Oh, I've learned the hard way to be wary of good sense!

I could have kept her."

Hmm, okay, I'll take a shot. Five of Cups?

Man, that was too easy! :)
You got it Kim.
5 of cups to me is a card of regret. And maybe a card of what if?
Calypso was a boat, he always regretted selling.
Good guess!

LOL! I knew the theme was regret, and I pondered about the 8 of Cups for a while, but finally went with my gut. I'm in a cold-medication-induced fog right now, but let me see if I can come up with a lit quote soon.
