Strategy Games

From an early age
I have always
loved strategy games;
to face a challenge
despite logistical complications.
To try,
and see what happens.
There is something about
seeing an opening, a
of weakness,
so temporary and seductive,
and capturing it.

It is so alluring,
to find the best angle to attack,
and the exact right
to ease up.

Lately I have felt
as though life has been a lesson
in strategy,
and I have been so careful
to time it all
just right.

And there have been
Where I have timed it wrong,
Where I have overextended,
Where I have left myself weak.
And those have been
where my opponent
eased up.
