Games can only last so
long before either side
of the board is ready
to call it quits.

Which is why I don’t
like playing them.

We are approaching
midnight and I’m
looking at the empty
seat across from me.

Holding a deck of cards
I have not held in years
and regretting having
ever agreed to this
in the first place.

I don’t want to retract my
progress from affection,
but the continuous loss
is enough to walk away.

Perhaps you will never know,
Perhaps you do not care,
what it is like to have an
ally like me on your side.

That does not detract
from my deck.
