Love Poem: Chess

Written by: Sofia Pedersen


She was your king
In a game of Chess
The one piece you valued most
You played your pieces
With my heart on your sleeve

You played your pieces
Neglecting that it was there
You used it as a pawn in your battle

That one piece you don't care about
You let it be devoured by deception 
Taken by the rook 
To you it was just another casualty in Chess

You protected her
You loved her 
Without your king
There is no Chess
When things ended

I was collateral Damage
In your game of deception
