Love is War

Each interaction
is a game,
deadly competition.

We circle each other,
vigilant,
like feral creatures
looking for an opening,
a weakness,
a place in which
to sink one’s teeth
and hold on.

Who will break first,
look away,
let their ego be trampled?

I am vulnerable
but not helpless.
My weapon is my indifference,
because advantage goes
to the one who cares
the least.

And in this game
of slings and arrows
where nothing is what it seems,
I will bury my heart,
lift my chin,
and always play to win.

This is a Three Word Wednesday post, and not to be taken too seriously.

sad that some people live this way in conflict. I prefer peace.

Love or the road to love is a competition, a testing time to see if the other measures up, whilst they both do the same. Mutual satisfaction or dissatisfaction is OK but the tears come when only one is disappointed.

And in the process take the ultimate loss. Pride is not worth the numbness.
