[A/N: I watched Moulin Rouge today, and Satine's line from 'Elephant Love Medley' struck a chord...]

Love is just a game...

Two players maximum,

Anything more is just too complicated

Waiting for Fate to roll the dice

Stuck in my corner,

Watching pieces move

Together, flawlessly

In front of me, solitary

Got cards in my hand

Ready to deal

Thrown my dice

Waiting to keel

Watching, waiting, wishing

Frozen in place by time

Waiting to pick up and run

Viewing others having all the fun...
