You don't know love, you know lust

You don't know fairness you just play

Until you are victorious

Smiling like the Joker

It's all a game to you

You're the King on the chessboard

The banker in Monopoly

The dealer in card games

I was the cat chasing your laser pointer

The puppy entranced by a butterfly

The little penguin who wanders off in curiosity

Only to be mauled by a large predator (cough, you)

Blood diamonds lingered in your eyes

Eyes that I once swooned over

But then realized their true nature

Of war, of distrust, of utter chaos

Like anyone who loses, I wallowed

Then smartened up

Tears turned angry

Plotting my revenge

Guess what, girls can play too.
