House of Cards

August 14th, 2022

I hope this poem finds you well
Hiding in your house of cards
You gave enough to gain my trust
But you never dropped your guard
Too afraid to travel the world
Or have a serious conversation
Wasting my time like it’s yours to gamble
And you leave me in frustration
You never cared enough to ask
You treat life like it’s poker
So I will continue to fold
When I needed an ace but all I got was a joker
So I hope this poem brings you hell
Because I will call your bluff
And if you keep using people like toys
You will never be enough

The Invitation

July 18th, 2022

You were unexpected to say the least
When your messages consumed my time
I was looking for a distraction
And you seemed to be inclined
A spontaneous invitation
An arrangement from a joke
I accepted your offer
Which you did not revoke
The taste of whiskey on your tongue
The scent tingling my nose
I admit I kissed you first
You played me like dominos
A careless decision in the midnight hours
A feeling I’ve never known
I got lost inside your games
When I should have stayed alone

Am I too obvious
Predictable to a fault
Exposed wounds are bleeding
So you rub it in like salt
Am I too honest for you
Someone that communicates
Feelings are too much
You’re done with my updates
But you’re too inconsistent
You go from hot to cold
I can’t keep up anymore
This routine has grown old
So now it is your turn
And this game is chess
You’ll play checkmate
But I’ve won nonetheless
Because I owe it to myself
After all I’ve been through
It’s time to move on
From this life I outgrew
