More Check Than Mate May18 by melodylowes His moves push all her buttons. He is a master at manipulating her tears, making them pawns in a complicated game of more take than give, more check than mate. Share this:FacebookEmailPinterestTwitterLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
Uh oh. Don’t like the sound of this (although I like the poem!)…
This one isn’t personal – just explorative. So no ouch here, although in general terms it could explain quite a number of relationships.
I’m glad, although the best art always comes from the deepest emotion, both good and bad.
I so agree. It’s pretty easy for me to write from an ‘ouch’ perspective, no matter what the context. I find that it really helps me to process the truth, get it sunk down deeper where it needs to take root.
Yeah, what you said.
Let the sun come up and dry all the raindrops for the leaf to proudly show its fresh colors!
Amen to that! 🙂
“Like” (Since WP won’t let me push the “Like” button at your site, I’ll “Like” you in another way!)
I like that way best, anyway! Thanks Russ!
I really loved this, Melody, and how you played with the words. Plus the photo was wonderful!
Thanks Debbie! I’m missing your presence already. Hope and pray you are well!
Beautifully done, Melody. I love reading your poems – they always deserve multiple read throughs.
Nice play on words, Melody! It really does look like a board game.
Blessings ~ Wendy
Thanks Wendy! I was thinking Chinese Checkers at first – but I liked the tile line too well to switch the game…
Too painfully familiar–I’m glad it’s just “explorative”, Mel. I prefer solitaire…
Nice connection… I like It!
An evil game.
Great write out of that pic!
Someone commented that they prefer Solitaire – that would have made a great additional line…
