Poem: Chessboard

My soul is on
Your chessboard
Have to think of
An escape route
No more
By you

I shouldn’t have
loved you
if it wasn’t that
then I wouldn’t
see so clearly. I don’t blame you
Blessed that
I’ve let it go

An unfinished glass of Merlot
A smile to accompany
before I sleep

Lips taste like Americano
The one you used to drink
After our love-making

    I am somehow reminded of the song “defying gravity”.
    Here is my favorite line in the lyrics:
    “Too long I’ve been afraid of losing love I guess I’ve lost…”

      It’s from Wicked, right? It’s amazing that you reminded of it. Thanks a lot for your comment. I really appreciate it. 🙂

        Yes, the one from wicked. I find the lyrics to be very liberating! 😀
