This Game

You and I face each other
weapons in hand
fate tied at the wrist

And as the blood pumps and rushes
what’s left to think about?

I’m faster than you and the
blade cuts into flesh

Spilling your heart out onto the floor.

    Love the tense drama of these few words. Captivating.

      Thank you very much. I debated saying more, but I think these words capture the feelings involved.

        Absolutely. Definitely what you don’t say “packs a punch”. Really dramatic.
