Chess

Shadow observer

A sly grin lines your mouth

You’re watching, waiting

But for what?

You’ve set pieces in motion

And I’m playing your favorite part

But what is this uncertainty

In my heart?

What does he have to do with this?

Why am I brought back to

False memories

Of pure bliss?

What’s the motive?

What’s the game?

Why do you smile at his name?

I feel a weight lifted

A noticeable shift

A sort of divide

A fractured rift

And while the separation feels “correct”

There is a sense of an impending threat…

The shadow offers no clues

Only approval

And I can’t help but feel like

I’m in an elaborate chess match

As a lone queen

Prized

Among pawns
