CHECKMATE


 


Out of the tunnel
and into the light,
to end the nonsense
and such a bold flight.
No apology will you accept,
for one I will not say;
because loving you
is forever and a day.


 


If ever you think of me,
let it be kindly,
for never once
did I reach out blindly.
If ever you feel unloved,
lonely and alone,
youíve only to remember,
Iím as close as your  phone.


 


Should you reconsider
and change your mind,
you have only to seek
to find.
Ah, such strategy I used
against your battle of wills.
Now, itís checkmate,
and the mighty pen stills.


 

Forged By Fire, Tempered In the Word

This poem operates on a spiritual, emotional and personal level. A winner! Philosophical and powerful piece.
