Rearrangement

I was petrified of losing you as if you were never more than a mirage, so I kept you out. And like the pieces of a chessboard, you took all my defenses and rearranged them, setting new rules. Before I knew it, you found your way in and I was left bared and vulnerable. But you never once hurt me. You wrapped yourself inside all that pain and separation to stand bastion, protecting me. It was far better than living with it all alone.

  1. I have that chess set! It’s my favorite of the dozens I’ve owned over the years!

    Anyway, a lovely piece. Well done! I especially love the line ” You wrapped yourself inside all that pain and separation to stand bastion, protecting me”

    Thank you for sharing!
