Love Is Not a Game


Love Is Not a Game

Love Is Not a Game.jpgTell me this.
Don’t do that
Acting like a bureaucrat,
you cite each rule.
All this time I’ve been
a fool to play along,
as if you’d change
direction, rearrange
priorities. Put us first,
not you. But the view
from here is still
the same. It pains me
to say this, but I have nothing
left to prove. It’s my turn now,
for my last move
I quit your game.

The five word prompts for The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Challenge # 137 are move, change, pain, turn, and view.

The optional prompt for Day 16 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month is to write a poem featuring the idea of playing and/or rules. (Of course, that’s my interpretation!)
