Game over?


Wanting desperately

to taste freedom

from an ordinary life.

Looking into the distance,

searching, only to find

that which you thought you had lost

was just your own head.


Who knows what ails

you but me?

And how shall I be the cure

when I have the same ailment too?

I’ve moved all my pieces around

And you’ve declared a checkmate.


Game over! Do you want to play again?
