Ace Of My Heart - Poem by Black on Black Arts

I see her from afar
eyes concealed behind shaded glasses
as she touches my heart from up close
Hiding my emotions I deal out a smile
but she sees me for who I am
and my bluff is revealed
thats what I love about her
Either life or love she lays it all out on the table
as she waits for my next move
I raise the ante and from her actions I see hope
she calls and with a stern look of determination
I know she's serious about me, about us
My mind starts to race
still with a trick up my sleeve I stall while making
small talk with her
But she sees thru my fasade
so I fold she smiles and gives me a warm embrace
Sometimes winning comes from losing
Even though I'm the king of all spades
her love for me is always trump
for the jack of clubs
makes you my queen of diamonds
and the ace of my heart

    The cards play out and you still win! This is so clever and well played! Actually we have the winning hand because when you folded, we got to see your winning hand.. (Report) Reply

    Excellent piece! I love the metaphor with the cards! Excuse the pun but you went all in and played that hand perfectly. You've got talent! I love poems like this, this is exactly the type of genre that I gravitate towards. Maybe because we write kind of in a similar fashion. Hope it's okay if I add you to my favorites list. I've only been here three days, so you will be my first! (Report) Reply
