These Games We Play



Today's muse: Daily Writing Practice.

Four-line poem.

These Games We Play

If I had known the outcome, would I have played;
would I have even followed the rules?

Or would I have cheated, like you did,
to ensure that I win and you lose?

Knowing the outcome. Wish I could rewrite the rules. But your poem begs me question, would I write for my gain or yours.

"Would I have even followed the rules?" Love that line.

Sometimes it's so much easier to lose.
