You were the one who chose the game
And placed the pieces on the board.
You made your opening move.
Lies wrapped in Truth.
Wanted your Lover’s game darker.
Black Queen with sights set.
Picked up your sacrificial pawn.
You did not see the gambit
….until it was too late.
The silent Rook took flight
Swooped and took your white Knight.
