Defeat - Poem by Nicklas Leow Yue Yang

Time halt,
Realization struck.
Pawns fell,
The board has been flipped.

Serene thoughts and a tranquil gaze,
Thine smooth and fluid hand flew,
Setting the game to a decisive end.

My negligence and ye astute analysis,
All leads to my utter defeat.

'Finita est' thou mutter.
As my head went flying,
And the lights went out.
.....GAME OVER.....

Topic(s) of this poem: calm, chess, game
