Game Of Love - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Like a chess board
I have certain limitations
I am the King and
She is the Queen
And we are standing face to face
We are in opposite camps
My kingdom doesn’t allow me to meet
Nor her kingdom is ever ready
In sixty four year- squares of life
We have umpteen moves to make
To win each other and come closer
My minister is after the opposition’s King
And all his moves are directed towards him
To make a win-win situation
My motives are clear, I do not
Want any body’s head or crown
What I want is the queen and
She is struggling between her own soldiers
to come out In open to confess her love
my moves are no less flamboyant
to plant my love I wore the playful mask
gliding smoothly in the territory of my
enemy where my love is waiting to
embrace with opened arms
arms are not empty it has ammunitions
she killed me with quiver eyes
years back when we met first time
In the darkness of night
We met again and killed each other to
End the game of love.
