OK, I’ll admit it:
your love
has got me surrounded

I’ve been so foolish
paying too much attention
and playing the same
elementary games
with boys
of lesser caliber,
getting high
on cheap,
secondhand thrills
while you,
Mister Mastermind,
continued to
tactically position
your key pieces
on strategic places
every time
I granted you
a turn,
getting ready
to take me
at the moment
I least expect it.
Your game is tight,
though I hate to concede it
I realized it when
I finally looked around
and found you
leaving me nowhere to move
and with no choice
but to submit
my final piece
to your winning hand.

I fell in love.
