Love Is Blind

take three steps back
contemplate this situation
analyse ever detail
you may not realise it
but he’s watching you

you’re shaking
with realisation
he smiles
at your sharp intake of breath

left or right
both lead to oblivion
under his gaze
everything becomes
an obligation

pride may come before a fall
but for now
he’s got gravity on his side

on his carefully crafted board
you have always been the pawn
his umpire status
manipulates your movements
into a two-move checkmate

your willpower
decays faster
than the corpse
of your love
at the exact spot
your vision
