The Game Of Love

Poem By CHARMAINE SIMPSON

The game of love – the long distance marathon of life-
Our paths crossed – we became a team –
Our goal was to complete the journey together –
Life’s challenges and hurdles we would no longer face alone –
Committed to the end –

What happened?
Who were you?
Who are you?
Why did you?
How could y0u?

You were playing to win – power was your prize –
You raced ahead toward your personal goal –
You left me behind – I couldn’t keep up –
Lost in your dark shadow – you covered your tracks –
Leading me to a path that took me back to where I began.

Off in the distance – I saw you – standing high on a cliff top –
You stood looking down on me – why didn’t you wait for me?
How did you gain such a distance from me?
Your eyes met with mine – with emptiness behind your gaze –
You turned away and proceeded toward your goal –
Leaving me to now travel the remainder alone.
