Checkmate

My life has never been easy,
That much is true.
But that never gave you the right,
To have done the things you do.

To take it all away,
I know I've hurt you.
I was genuinely sorry,
And that's how I began to lose.

Regret overcame me,
I wanted what I had.
You wanted me too,
I was increasingly glad.

We were as we had once been,
Cuddling and loving.
Until you decided to play your ace,
You couldn't have been more cunning.

You drew me in,
Fed me lies,
Bathed my weakness,
Watched me die.
You took away what I'd tried so hard for,
And threw me out your back door.
I never saw it coming,
I loved you too much.
They say love is blind,
So is deception.

You were my shoulder,
My cuddling partner.
I thought you were the one,
That I cared for more than any other.

But you played a little game,
And brought me to my knees.
I thought I'd won you back,
But I hadn't even gotten that key.

The key I once had to your heart,
I'd had it for a while.
Despite our past disputes,
I wished one more trial.

You drew me in,
Fed me lies,
Bathed my weakness,
Watched me die.
You took away what I'd tried so hard for,
And threw me out your back door.
I never saw it coming,
I loved you too much.
They say love is blind,
So is deception.

That trial failed,
As did the ones before.
I just thought you loved me,
You'd told me so much more.

But that was just you,
Your little ploy.
To take everything away,
And you were exceedingly coy.

I couldn't have bested you,
In fact I didn't desire.
I just wanted you,
And all your little fire.

I was fooled like any other,
Wit fully vanquished.
When all I wanted,
Was to end it in a kiss.

You drew me in,
Fed me lies,
Bathed my weakness,
Watched me die.
You took away what I'd tried so hard for,
And threw me out your back door.
I never saw it coming,
I loved you too much.
They say love is blind,
So is deception.

I leave you to your chess,
You played well with your rooks.
You pulled a checkmate out of nowhere,
One that should be written in the books.
